Yeah, the market value says it's worth $200 if it's in good shape, but you shouldn't just buy it for the market value - if you don't really need it, it's not worth $200 to you.

But a 50mm k 1.2 in E shape? Definitely worth $200 as a fair market price. If it's not in good shape, the price drops fast.

PS: I put all or most of my stuff in my sig, but rest assured there are many in this forum that have much more LBA than me hidden 'behind the scenes' and out of their sig

If it's the Pentax A or K version, I'd say the price is pretty good, a steal actually
I thought K and A are the Only version in Pentax for 50mm f1.2, no?

Correct. No M or later than A.

there's no excuse not to get the lens, especially at that price. and even if you do not want it, you could probably sell back for a tidy profit. i have an A50 1.2 and it's definitely an interesting lens, but not using it as much as i thought i would. if you would like more resources about the lens, check out my post here

At $200.00 buy the lens. If you find you don't like it or use it, you will be able to sell and get your money back.

market price is a difficult thing to talk about on a large international forum. Depending on where you live, prices can vary widely. I expect a 50 1.2 to cost me $350.00. give or take.

My SMC-M 50 1.4 cost me 140.00, after taxes and shipping. So a $200.00 1.2 would make me jump without hesitation.

There might be some other PK mount 50/1.2 lenses, 'cause the original post didn't claim it's a Pentax one ...

But we now know it's a K 50/1.2. I'd offer 201USD (beats the other offers above!) for that if the deal felt through
