So what? This titanium lens is rare and therefore expensive (see this and that). Leave to the collectors, the black A 50/1.2 is much less expensive for us photographers.

Cheers!

Seems like we get a thread like this pretty often.

I will say that collector's items aside, Ebay is a lot less tempting with used Pentax lenses than it was a year or two ago. The bargains are just not there. I am far more interested these days in used items from KEH or one of the other camera stores. Given the excellent customer service most of the stores provide, I am sometimes at a loss why people pay as much or more for the same item on Ebay.

I remember the good old days of ebay bargains. Now you have to look for mispelled words to find deals. ha

Pretty sure Phaser was being sarcastic, though it's hard to tell on the internet, especially across language barriers.

yes i was sarcastic about the price but i would not post if i did not belive it could be interesting for someone on the forum. If you don't like to read about ebay offers don't open the thread, and don't answer it, (if no one answer, it's gone from the first page in a day)

I have seen higher prices on the millennium version of this lens. The sets with the matching LX are up there. That said while this price is a bit high, consider that it is the newest version of the f1.2 Pentax lenses and compare it with the FA 77mm and FA 31mm silver versions. That said, I personally think ~$1-1100 is more realistic. However, if I had Leno money, I may think about it.

Big question is where is the body? I don't believe these were sold separately.
