It's rare to see it being sold separately. A longshot, but possible!

Pentax was crazy back then to use snakeskin on a lens though, lol. Let alone gold.

I understand having Limited editions of items and Limited production runs for collectors items. Just a small uptick in price usually. But gold and snakeskin!?!?! Opulence, they had it.

Holy Golden Crocodile! - it's beautiful The one and only lens for covering a cocktail party on the embassy. A unique matching tie and handkerchief and lens opportunity.

If I could find a matching pair of Speedos and grow 2" long body hair all over I'd definitely be in for one but I'd like the matching gold LX to go with it.

The Goldfinger Edition. VERY nice, very posh - and a little Dundee too...

I'm too wondering about the attitude and dress code one may have to apply when carrying this kind of fellow around. Downton Abbey Dinner Dress?
