They *really* have to pay to play...

this is from another message board..... I use the same handle and was shocked at the price ($1619).

Does anyone have the Canon EF 50mm f / 1.2L USM Lens? Posted by: RS4Dave (2121) on 2009-10-20 09:41:01

I think what the OP is saying is that Canon users have to pay $1600 for their autofocus 50mm f/1.2 whereas you can score a Pentax SMC-A 50mm f/1.2 for ~$500 (or less?)

I used the SMC-A 50mm f/1.7 for a little while, but I MUCH prefer autofocus to manual focus. Perhaps if I had a proper split-prism focusing aid I would think differently.

Oh, and you can get K-mount to EF mount adapters, so Canon shooters can use the SMC-A 50mm f/1.2 if they want a save a bundle!
