K 28mm f2.0

Like everyone else, I perpetually have my eye out for a Hollywood K 28/2.0. If you decide to part with yours, or see one for sale, give me a shout!
--Many thanks.

This one just popped up on eBay, from a seller in France:

Rare SMC Pentax 28mm F/2 Wide Angel Lens K Mount from JAPAN Grand Angle | eBay

Thanks for posting that up. Getting it from the EU to the US is pretty cost-prohibitive, at least via eBay.

There are two K28/2's on eBay, but they are very expensive. One is $1300.00USD and the other €1200.00.

Thanks, Phil. I know they're stoopid expensive. The Japanese dealers seem to be especially fond of theirs...

What is so special about a "Hollywood K28/2.0??

There are several copies of the M28/2.0 available at the Marketplace here right now.

I don't find the M28/2s, but I may not be searching properly. The K28/2 was designed by Asahi Optical and Zeiss Optical in conjunction, and enjoys quite the reputation. They're also relatively scarce. If you go to the lens reviews, you can read about the K.

I still donít know if 28/2 is that much better than FA31
Well, perhaps a discussion for other than a WTB thread, eh?
