$120 to spend on a prime lens...

and i want a 50mm 1.4 really badly, but i just don't know which one to get! i've been looking around ebay and the marketplace here at PF but i can't make up my mind, can you guys help me out? Also i'd prefer one with a K-mount, so i don't have to buy an adapter.

If you are interested, I'll be taking possession of an A-50mm F1.4 this weekend (it's been sitting at a buddy's house since January waiting for me to pick it up).

I'll do a quick taste test between my existing A-50mm F1.7 and the F1.4 and make a decision to sell one of them.

Cheers.

How about a like-new Pentax-F 50 f/1.7?

I just sold this one for $127. I still have a better one that I was to keep for myself. But I just bought a Sigma 50mm macro.

The lens comes with original front + rear caps and a 49mm UV filter.

For you, it's $120 + actual shipping. You can try it for a week. If you don't like it, ship it back to me. I'll refund $120 + 1 way shipping cost.

Let me know.

^^^ Wow, nice.

Let me try: I really want a DA*50-135, but I can only spend $75. Can anyone help?

Why, yes, I was wondering if anyone out there would be willing to take my NIB 50-135 off my hands! $75 sounds fair! What's your address?

Jay, seriously, that price fits in pretty well with the prices of your last fire sale in the marketplace .

You may have your heart set on the f1.4, but don't discredit the f1.7...it's an excellent lens and just as good (some say even better).

I've had the M 1.7 and now the FA1.4...and both are fantastic lenses.

Good luck.

I see whole pentax cameras going all the time on ebay for less money and they often come with the 50mm lens but the owner has no clue and doesn't even include a description of it so you have to zoom right in on the photo to figure out what is attached
