What a gorgeous piece of work.

Amazing work!! I would be sorely tempted if I was not saving every penny for the camera it is supposed to go on..............

That really is a work of art.

Don't you dare, that lens has enough problems with ghosting as things stand.

This looks better than the silver version that was sold with the limited edition LX 2000. Awesome work.

If it was possible for someone to send in their lens to have this done how much would it cost?

Very pretty, if I did not have another Pentax-A, and the Pentax K 50/1.2, I would buy this one immediately. Any chance that you take trades?

Beautiful. I wonder how many man-hours are involved in refinishing a lens like that.

Depends on the lens size/complexity and how much customization work. My most basic refinish on a simple prime is $100.

This one took the better part of a day. I've worked on a few A 1.2s by this point, so I was familiar with the construction and it was a bit quicker than if I had gone into disassembly blind.

Depends on what you are offering... Hit me up with a PM if you have any ideas.

Well, yes, but busy busy busy between various projects (camera-related and otherwise), family commitments, writing, volunteering, and looking for full-time employment!

I see you may be willing to do trades on other lenses - can I interest you in a body part? I will have to consider what I can give up.
