[SOLD] Pentax M-50mm 1.4

Up for sale is the Pentax M-50mm 1.4
Usable eBay lens caps will be included.
Asking for ($75 (USD/CDN) + Shipping ) x 1.03 for PayPal
I don't have much of a reputation on eBay but I have positive feedback on this forum.

Why is this lens special?

All the Pentax 50mm 1.4s are optically similar and are very well regarded. However, the M 50mm 1.4 retains the metal build of prior lenses in a compact form factor.

From Michael Johnston of Luminous Landscapes
"The early Takumar designs were gorgeously built they're just about the smoothest-focusing lenses ever made, Leica not excepted. This excellent mechanical construction and "feel" lasted through the SMCP-M lens, which handles marvelously (for me, the commonplace SMCP-M lens is just about ideal in terms of size, weight, feel, and handling)." My Favorite Lens

From Fred on Stan's Pentax Photography
"However, while I've sold off most of these test lenses by now, I've still kept an M 50/1.4 (as well as an A 50/1.4), because using the M lens is simply such a pleasure. "They don't make 'em like this anymore" surely applies to the SMC Pentax-M 50/1.4 lens. The A 50/1.4 is a nice enough lens to use, but the M 50/1.4 is a ~really~ nice lens to use. If I were you, I'd hang onto that M 50/1.4 you already have, even if you do stumble into a good deal on an A 50/1.4."
Brief Comments
