How much is this thing worth?

A while back I got a Pentax SF-1 and a 50mm f/1.7, and I'm not sure how much the lens is worth. I think it's either an FA or F series, I've seen photos of the F ones and it looks similar. I was going to sell it, but I wanted to know how much it was worth before posting a thread.

It should be a 50mm F 1.7. F series has red letter 50, and slightly bigger than the FA 50 1.7. It.'s a pretty good lens, works with both SLR and DSLR. I have the same one. I got mine of from craigslist for $60 with the SF1 camera. A mint condition lens can easily worth $100-$120.

Yeah that's it, but it looks like mine has a small crack on the front part, but it doesn't connect to anything to make it feel wobbly, and the front filter threads or mount is broken in a few places.

The filter ring on ur is damaged. It happen alot to the new Plastic shell. If no damage to the lens, it still takes amazing pictures. I use it on my K10D all the time, very sharp lens. Good to keep if you don't have any other 50mm, or just dump it on ebay, should still sells a good value near $100.

Maybe i'm wrong, but i think i read a few months ago (at a Canon forum btw) that the SMC F 50mm f1.7 was the photography lens for non scientific use with the highest resolution ever. I remember something like 140lp/mm???

I have recently sold two on ebay for about $120, which I think is a great price for this lens. These were in good shape with intact filter threads though, so ymmv.

Some people actually prefer the F 1.7 or FA 1.7 over the FA 1.4. so i just still alot of people looking for this lens type. i just sold mine in good condition for $130 local. getting the new FA 1.4 tomorrow. I hope it's not a disappointment.
