High trust for anyone who demonstrates their gear using family photos...and nice ones at that.

Well...I don't think you can sell it at that price.
Since M50/1.2 in good condition is like $400.

I think someone might consider it if it is about $300.

Well, taking the aperture lever off this lens is like taking arms and legs off a beautiful women...

To all those still bickering, bear in mind, even if you buy this lens at this price, it's like a Stop-Down 50/1.2. Personally, I'd find that preferable to the M50/1.2, since at least it will function in AV fully. (Albeit, full A mode might be preferable)

Furthermore, if you wanted to use it as an A lens, I'm sure the repair on the bayonet will cost less than $300(About the difference between this and a normal A1.2).

You know, if you grab this little gem, an NEX, and a speed booster for $200, you've a full frame sort-of-compact for under $1,000. At this point it's worth taking, but not by me since I have the K version already.

Payment Sent.

As I said to Montman, I believe this will be a win-win for our Pentax community as I have an unaltered SMC-A 50mm f1.2 that I am planning to sell to offset a recent Canon 6D purchase (just want to try full frame while waiting to see what Pentax does.) I can take in this slightly disfigured 50mm f1.2 and give it a good home (and use on both Canon and Pentax) while releasing a perfectly good K-mount 'A' version back "into the wild." The only downside is that I now need to find another lens to sell since, in essence, I am keeping this one.

Thanks Montman!
