Just offered a guy $50 for a 28mm 3.5 "$50 shipped is unrealistic and insulting

Basic life lesson here, if you can't afford to pay market value then either find a better deal or save up more money until you can afford it."

What a jerk, haha.
This is mine, purchased 2 weeks ago.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you decide to sell it so quickly? I was also looking at the smc M 28mm 2.8 and they seem to go for even cheaper.

I don't think you got that right.. it's mine now. I upgraded from a Super to this SMC and am very curious to see the difference in performance. In my opinion, the M28 has been much, much better than the Super Tak 28/3.5. Can't tell anything about the SMC unfortunately.

The problem is actually with the takumar 55mm 1.8, not the 35mm. But thanks for the suggestions!
I think he meant to send it in and have them fix it to work better at infinity focus. Dunno if this is possible, but it might be worth a try.
And yes, that guy's reply was a bit harsh. Some people just don't like to barter, while others do. Keep trying

Well I just ordered a SMC Takumar 28mm 3.5 on keh.com. Almost got the super takumar but the SMC seems like a way better option, decreasing the amount of flare and all. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions, I appreciate it!

Too bad you missed out on the Computar 28/2.8 last month. Very nice lens for $17 shipped...

For a longer lens, in the future, you may want to consider the M 80-200mm f/4.5 zoom. You could probably find one for under $50 or so, and it takes very nice pictures.
