Hehe I feel so weak now. Only days after I posted in this thread and complained about the insane prices I paid quite a bit for a Rikenon 55mm f1.2.

Oh well.. We all need at least one fast lens, right?
You can get lucky, I walked into a Pawn Shop in a country town I was passing through couple of weeks ago, picked up a mint Rikenon F2 50mm for $20 AUD.

Also got lucky in another used stuff shop, like a pawn shop.. Sigma 70-300 in almost mint condition for $90 AUD. I have taken some great shots with this lens, even though it is not highly regarded by some, at those prices it is a super deal and I just work within its limits.

And no postage!!

Is this the XR Rikenon or the Rikenon P 50/2? Hows the quality?

Holy CRAP where did you find a Rikenon 55/1.2. I heard that lens among others are like insanely rare!

It was on ebay... Rikenon XR 55mm f1.2. I guess that not many people search for Rikenons as only me and one other person were bidding for it. Seller was from the US.

It is quite rare indeed. It is almost impossible to find information about it.

a Rikenon 55/1.2 - NICE find! That is going to make one hell of a fast 85mm (well ok....82mm) on digital. Definately MUCH harder to find than the Pentax 50/1.2. If I remember correctly, these were really popular with the Pentax crowd about 5 years ago - almost reaching cult status. Enjoy
