What should be the maximum price for Pentax-A 15mm lens as the DA 15mm is coming up?

For whatever reason I have decided to get only 35mm prime lenses and a few DA zoom lenses (FF coming up one day ??).

And liking wide angles I have been thinking for a while to get/find a pentax-A 15mm.

what would be your maximum price for it knowing DA-15 is coming up???


Cheers,
PS/ If one of you would like to sell or better give his precious, please PM....

Probably the same as the DA-15, question should be, why would I want a DA-15 instead of a S-M-C Takumar or SMC-A/M?

Knowing what I paid for mine brand new a few years ago, I would say a gently used A series 15mm f/3.5 should sell for somewhere in the Can$1200.00 - $1500.00 range.
However, if you are wanting a lens for DSLR, the 14mm f/2.8 is actually the better lens and sells new for around Can$600.00 if I recall correctly.

HTH=Hope That Helps

BTW, KEH.com is one of the most reputable places around to buy used gear from, so if you want that one, you can feel safe that they're not going to screw you over.

I doubt you will see a drop in price on the older manual focus lens, if that's what you're after...
