Some samples from yesterday (6/17/2007), all are wide open shots, full crops:









The wide open DoF is like paper thin at minimum focal distance, and it's sharp enough to my standard even wide open.

WOW! I must say, the condition of that lens is amazing. Would love to have one of these, but don't think the wifey would let me "swing" that one

Well, it's pretty much a brand new one I'd say My wife would be really mad if she knew how much it cost me when I bought this little lens

Good luck.

Ah see, that's the beauty of Pentax glass. Long term owners saw the value drop precipitously until the dSLRs came on strong and if they bought low can now sell them for a profit -- if willing to part with them!

It is true for some lenses (like F/FA 300/4.5, FA200/2.8, A135/1.8 and etc.), but this A50/1.2 has never been cheap as far as I know. The price I'm asking is at least $50 lower than what I paid for (a brand new one) ...
