Item for Sale
Cosina 55mm f/1.2 (Worldwide)

Asking Price

Item Description
This is a fast little gem of a lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.2 It features a K mount (not KA) and manual focusing. It is new in its box and has never been used. There is some minor dust inside, but nothing that will affect picture quality. Glass and outside are perfect and pristine. It is a fully metal lens featuring multicoated optics and the sturdy Cosina build of yesteryear. It comes with both caps.

few people use F1.4 or F1.8 on their lenses at it is

you really need to have a project in mind to bother with a 1.2 lens, otherwise its just wasted shelf space.

So why would you buy a lens that you wont use in the first place? I think that my question is valid and there is no need to go too far to understand the question.

Calm down, children

Gruoso, maybe I have more than one... And yes, it is a legitimate question.

Gooshin, I just shot f/1.2 1 hr ago. No other way to get a pic in a dark conference hall at ISO800 and 1/20s-1/30s on a K10D.

Platinum, Blue, jgredline, I will e-mail you guys pics later this evening when I get home. It might be late, because I'm very busy today at work, so please be patient.

Gruoso, Bigben, do you want pics too?

Damn Miserere I wish you'd stop listing stuff when I just emptied the bank account on a K20D. This sounds sweet. Maybe if it's still available on payday....
