Pentax-A 50mm f1.2 (yep 1.2!) near MINT

Asking Price
see description

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
I know that I probably don't have to tell you that there is No Substitute for low-light capability and that super skinny depth-of-field - you only have to look in any glossy magazine and see that these images have the greatest impact (partly because they are so out-of-the-ordinary).

If you are a Bokeh Connoisseur then you probably know that the Pentax f1.2 bokeh is creamy perfect compared to what I call the "weird ass bokeh" you see in cheaper examples like the Cosina/Porst that normally sells for north of $500. Get the Genuine Article instead: This one is priced to sell quickly at $525 (firm) plus actual shipping.

In addition, this is a Pentax-A lens, meaning that it will be The Most Convenient to use on today's Pentax DSLRs.

NOTE: (Should Pentax reveal a FF camera this year, as is anticipated, you probably won't be able to touch this lens for less than $800, making it a great investment - in addition to an incredible lens for your arsenal.

Check out these images that were created with the A50 f/1.2 accepted to the Pentax Photo Gallery:
PENTAX : Select a PENTAX interchangeable lens camera or a lens model

If you are ready to take your images into this rarified air, here is a gorgeous example and it is priced to sell quickly. Click on any image to see it BIGGER.













Must sell this lens by tonight (LBA is a harsh mistress and I have another purchase to pay for!)

This one is priced to sell quickly at $525 (firm) plus actual shipping. (Check that infernal auction site to see what they generally sell for an you will see that this is a rare opportunity to own this great lens for a very reasonable price. Will consider worldwide sale to member with good Marketplace feedback. PM me for actual shipping to your country (fast or cheap, your choice). Serious only, please, as these quotes take time.

If I hadn't just acquired a K50mm f1.2, the money would be on its way to you already!

It's not so simple - K series are addictive just like the Limiteds
I would love to add this lens to my collection but I acquired FA43 recently....
good luck with the sale...

What are you up for trading for? I have a FA 43 LTD or an Auto-Tak 85 f/1.8 that I can offer for this lens.

Been pondering selling mine, too, but with the FF likely coming I dunno... probably I'll hang on to it.
