An opposite story to Jay's

Well I congratulate jsherman999 on his score at Adorama. I've been wanting a prime in the 35mm range, the 31ltd while a lustful lens, is a bit too steep. So when I saw that a 35mm Pentax "A" F2.0 was in the "In transit" section over at KEH I said "Yea and Hooray!" I can now score a good 35mm prime! Well they've finally listed it. $310!!!!!!!!!!! I can get a NEW FA 35mm F2.0 for $299 at Adorama! I know used glass is a premium, but what in the heck is KEH thinking?

I have an A35/2. I use it instead of my FA35/2.
I don't know if this matters or not.

I used to have one. It sold for $364 at eBay a few years ago. I guess it's kind of rare.

I think KEH has jacked up the k-mount stuff in the last couple of years. I guess they caught on, and the demand is there.
