I did not put all my 'standard' lenses in that trunk, just enough to get the correct number of mm thats printed on the lid.
So just add them up, and you will know it.

Ah a lens puzzle, yep my guess was right a K1000/f8!

Very nice collection, do you have a picture of the beast K1000?

FYI: I posted a Pentax price list from 1978 in the "K Club" thread. The list price of a
K1000/f8 in January 1978 was $1,919.70USD.

Yep, you guessed right.
Somewhere I have pictures of this monster, just look at my avatar
Some test shots with the lens you can find here

And mine was an occasion years ago, and much cheaper.

If you had those lenses, which would you keep and why?
Personally, none I don't care much for a 50mm prime.
But if you do - and it sounds like you do , then maybe just the FA 50 1.7 .

I hate say anything, but I think they may be breeding in there...

Steve
If that's what's going on in there, can I borrow that case as for a bit to give my lenses a home to do their thing?

While you're at it, I wouldn't mind the big glass that looks like normally resides there

And I thought I had a problem hoarding 50's, but after reading this thread I now feel very normal.

You feel very "normal"? How very 50mm of you! ;-)

Used to own the SMC Takumar 50/1.4 and the M55/1.8.

Now my only 50mm are the FA50/1.4 and the A50/1.4 (which replaced an A50/2 that I had briefly). Plus a Kalimar 50mm/1.8 Minolta mount I only use on the reverse ring.

I own a Super Tak 50mm f1.4, along with a M-Series 50mm f2.0, and a K-Series 55mm f1.8.
I had a second M-Series 50mm f2.0, however I gave it away with my K100D. Thinking that it's one of then best lenses for me to teach photography with.
I've heard good things about the 50mm f1.7's, so I'd like to get one some day.
The 50mm f1.2 won't focus to infinity with my system (unless I remove the dust (UV) filter), so I don't desire it.

I think I have added a couple more 50s since I posted in this thread. One of them is from ~1939 so it don't count.
