Good price for this lens.
I'd buy it if I hadn't already just bought a 18-250 from Mike!

Lens Hood addition

I just added to the lens sale an extremely rare 52mm Lens Hood made for the 50mm f/1.2 in Brand New Mint Condition.
Lens hood comes in a Leather Case. See photo. Look at description on the lens hood.

This is a very nice lens if you're after very shallow DoF or want to shoot in very low light. Mike's sample seems to be in near mint condition, too. K lenses in general have an exceptional build, but I think they put some extra love into the 50/1.2. I only sold mine because I bought the A version (same optical formula).

As a side note, Pentax claimed they were the first to produce a 50mm f/1.2 lens, and this lens was it.

Fanboy Comments

I rarely post fanboy type comments, but these are incredibly nice product and sample shots. Getting the marble in focus from inside the lens isn't easy.

As a side note, I own this lens. Despite rumors that its a little soft wide open - it's not. It really has to do with getting the depth of field precisely right. It is a very capable lens in the right hands, as it is with this gentleman here.

Free bump and good luck selling your excellent sample!

Lets see, an M 50mm f1.4 and another M 50mm f1.7 that I don't utilize much, and an FA 50mm f1.4 on order, I still need this.

On the 'flip' side, I am glad it is out of my reach, at least for now. So a free bump to what I've heard of but never even laid my hands on, one of the finest primes ever made.

Are you, by any chance, also selling the mug used in the sample photos? It's a very nice mug.

oh no, I could never sell the mug. My son hand painted that mug at one of those ceramic shops to give to me for a Father's Day Present. It's priceless!
