It would be nice if this got into the hands of someone here to try it out and post some samples.

This lens is more precious than the mass-produced M35 / 1.4
Anyway, M35 / 1.4 sold 6.
We all think this price is cheap.
Actual value should be over 1.5 million Japan yen.

I'm curious about that 35mm 1.4. Have you ever seen one? It seems at least as rare as this 20mm, despite being "mass-produced".

I'm hanging out for s/n 293001.... with all the losses on the share market $20k on a lens would just get lost in it all. I wonder if dcshooter would silver it for me......

So is the price 800,000 yen? That would be about $7500.00 USD?

The vignetting seems strong with this one, though. Is it just me, or have the photos been cropped to a different aspect ratio? So maybe vignetting could be even worse... but then this lens is probably more of a collector's item.

There was a brief discussion in DPR in 2007 about 1976 prototype K20/1.4
Here's the link to the discussion on dpreview:
