2 rare items in 1 purchase/need help

I still can't believe I was so lucky. All the ad said was Pentax SF10, and teleconverter. The treasure was the Pentax-F AF 1.7X adapter, and the rare Pentax-F 50mm f/1.4. The question is do I keep the F or the FA?

That's a very good purchase. Something similar happened to me once too.

I still can't believe some of the Craigslist postings where people are trying to sell film SLR package with two no-name lenses and flash for $400. And that's not even Pentax LX but just some Ricoh or old Minolta camera.

wow... what a sweet find!
although Photodo says that the F is supposedly sharper, i find that's hard to believe ... personally i like the look of the FA lens better

I was looking on e-bay, and was amazed at the price on the adapter. One sold for $432.00 on the 30th. I'm tracking the lens that is also for sale. I think I will probably sell the F, I like the look of the FA better. Does anyone know how rare this lens is?
