k20d + Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 price?

Got an offer to buy a k20d + Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 for 8500kr which is about 1050$us. Feels a bit steep for me as a beginner, was looking for something just above the kit zoom and this lens feels like overkill.

Does it make sense to buy the combo and sell the lens or would that make me a fool?

thankful for any advice!

Are these new or used? That's an excellent price for the camera and lens new, but not a good a deal if they are both used. If it's used, just look for the body only elsewhere, and the lens you want instead, which should definitely get you under $1000US.

They are both used. What do you think i could get for the lens if i were to buy the combo and then sell the lens?

You should be able to get $400 for just the lens used.
