What you mean over here they range from 10 pounds for a 55 1.8 in good condition to a 200 f4 for 40-50 pounds just have to look.
I bought my spotmatic with a super tak 50 1.4 for 50 pounds in excellent condition.
The 55 and the 200, along with the 135 3.5 are the cheapest of the Taks ($50-70). A 50 1.4 that was selling for less than $100 last year is now $130-170. The price of the 85 has gotten ridiculous, way over $300. Even the 28 3.5 is going for $100 or more. The theory here is that this is mostly due to Canon shooters buying them up because they hear how great they are.

This thread probably should have been in the lens forum.

It's absolutely sad that Canon users can't find good Canon glass and have to fall back on Pentax

By the way, you must not tell everybody that Takumars are cheap over here; now they come shopping for some cheap glass like the SuperTak 300mm/4 for ZAR600

You're right to hide the fact that you can buy a 300/4 for 1/3 the price in the US. Too bad Pentax Adapter K costs so much over there.
