your opinion on 2 lenses and price

What would you pay for these 2 used but good condition lenses ?
Also what lens would you rather own ?

1. Pentax SMC 50mm/f1.4

2. Pentax lens SMC-A 28/2.8

the SMC 50mm F1.4 should be about $70, it would be more in an A series since it is much more flexible in terms of use with P-TTL flash and matrix metering.

the A 28 Is hard to guess but if you can an SMC 28 F2 would be a much better selection, just more expensive

p.s. I own the SMC 50mm F1.4 and it is a very nice lens, better feel than the M series. I can't speak about the A series, but I imagine the A series is closer to the M than K.

I'd put the A28mm f/2.8 at somewhere around $100 in good condition. The feel of the aperture ring isn't as nice as the earlier lens series but it is a good general purpose prime on a digital body.

The guy wants to sell me the Pentax SMC 50mm/f1.4 for $95

I think it is a little overpriced but I might bite the bullet.

Man that is a steal ... so repent for your sins and hand that 50 over to me.

I'll put in a good word with god for you.
