Inexpensive AF prime

The only one I can think of really is the DA 35 2.4. Which, of course, is sold out anywhere it's priced decently: B&H, even Henry's here in Toronto (which isn't really priced decently). Unrealistic as it may sound, I was hoping for something around the $100 range, maybe a little bit more? But the closer it gets to the DA 35 2.4 "brand new" price at B&H, and I'd probably just hold off and wait for them to get new stock.

May also be interested in any inexpensive MF wide or telephoto primes, depending on the price. Though, my focus for now really is on an AF. I LOVE my Takumars, Pentax-M and A, but my main subject for photography is my lightning-fast 3-year old son. That alone says it all.

Appreciate any offers.

well, maybe the FA50/f1.4, there are from time to time people in me Marketplace selling them around $175.

I have owned the DA35/f2.4, good lens for the price, if you can get it near $100 that would be great!

Awww...and I was hoping you had one of those for sale ...But yeah, I had all but given up on an FA 50 1.4. Most of the ones I've seen lately are closer to the $300 or + range, so not even close to my budget. But I'll keep an eye out nonetheless .

I guess an FA or F 50 1.7 could work as well. Though, I hardly see those being listed.
