This gentleman is a member of a french forum on which I post regularly...
There is a full collection of 28 star lenses :
All M*
FA* - including the very rare FA*200 f4 macro
Standing up on the left appears to be an F*300/4.5 (one that I do have).

It's good to see that exceptionalism (or is that "contrarianism"?) is alive and well in France (does he drive a CitroŽn, too?).

We have a few people on the forum that have bigger collections, but they want to keep them so they don't bragg about

You mean the enormous white one? That would be the A* 400/2.8.

I'm crying.... I'll come back and post when I feel a little better.

The sad thing is, when Pentax Canada go to a trade show, they don't have a fraction of that.

I notice it's shot with a K20D and a 31 ltd... so there's at least one excellent lens that isn't in the picture, unless he has two of them.

I confirm a 400 f2.8
I wonder what could be the estimated price of the collection. 100 000 $ at least; nevertheless he was really successfull of completing a collections of all these lenses which on the second hand market can be seen only once every many years...
