Was looking at a different lense on Amazon, when at the bottom it showed the 50mm F1.4 selling for $699. I don't get it when it shows two new for $349 and 1 used for $599. This is ridicoulus. Maybe amazon is having problems like Bestbuy did with the $9.99 LCD TV Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 Lens: Camera & Photo
And all of the reviews are from a time when the lens sold for around $199.00

Maybe I should snap up a few of those Bel Air lenses and keep them for re-sale in a year or two. You never know....

Hi, I am quite curious.. is this lens Made in Japan? or assemble in other country?

I heard the mix story about it. Like if it was manufacture before 2005, it is made in Japan. Anything after is somewhere else, and there are some quality difference...........
