Is the SMC-F 50 1.7 Worth $$$.$$

Is it a great value at $150.00 plus or minus? I found on on Craigslist attached to a SF1n for $45.00, and passed it up. Now, looking at the going bay prices I am still kicking myself. But, I will find another at a sub $50.00 price. (I have no life, and spend hours, days, months looking for what I want, and usally find it.

The new DA50/1.8 is coming, personally I would not pay too much for one right now, though at the price you seem to be finding them, there is no harm getting one.

That is a great price- go snatch it up before someone else gets it!

$150 would be a very good price to pay if you were looking to buy one. I've seen them go $200-250 on the 'bay.

Yes, look for anyone selling an SF1, it will have some kind of F lens on it, usually either a 50/1.7 or the F 35-70 both super lenses.

I have the Pentax F 50 1.4 and F 50 1.7 I got both from Craigslist for less than $40...

Have to say that I bought that set for $40.
No regrets, that's great lens in good condition...
Here it is some pictures....
By the way my kit 18-55 mm works with SF1n.
