That Volna-9 is one sweet lens. I posted some samples in the review section here...I just dont have patience for MF and thus sold it. But mine also needed an adpater and this one with integrated adapter be even better. The stiff AF ring was never a problem.

I want to thank everyone for making this thread a success. Pentaxians are great people! Only one person backed out of a sale.

That Pentax-M 50mm f1.4 is a fantastic lens in every way. If I didn't already have one, I'd snap it up. Good luck with your sale! :-)
