Just in case anyone has to just have a 50/1.7 macro...
Posted By: jhaji, 09-04-2012, 05:32 PM

it's really out there in the M42 mount.Whoever knew that Alpa made bodies in M42!

Be prepared to pay a pretty penny (and hopefully a finder's fee )

M42 Macro Chinon 1.7/50 f. Alpa Pentax #7300041 - FREE SHIPMENT | eBay

Wow, any idea what the magnification is on that one? The DOF at f1.7 and full magnification must be microscopic.

EDIT: I just looked closer at the pictures, 1:3, so not too ridiculous. The DOF is still pretty much non-existent though.

Saw this thing once before

Saw this lens (not the same lens) on EBay a while ago. Sold for a fraction of the asking price here.
