Lens Value?

What's a FA 50/2.8 Macro lens in mint condition worth these days?

Didn't see any on ebay, so I though I would check here.

Around $350-400. It's a great lens

B&H has them in stock if you're looking to get one. I haven't seen ANY on ebay. I finally broke down and ordered my 50mm 1.4 last night from B&H.

These Pentax lenses, in my opinion, have gone up in price on the used market. I recently bought a new 35mm FA f2.0 because the bidding for a used one on Ebay went higher than B&H. I asked about this on PhotoNet and someone said they appeared to out of the US buyers. They don't have the luxury of B&H.
