Rare And Clean?

I'd guess the final selling price will be over $350.00 USD, maybe even $400+. I've been looking for a good M/F 135mm the last few months, ended up paying $260 USD for a Pentax A 135 2.8. The f1.8 is even more hard-to-find and this one looks exceptionally clean.

I bet it would be much more than that...perhaps 600-700 EURO ....approx. 750-900 USD

I'm going to guess closer to $1000 USD

And what a beautiful copy it is.
If I had the money, I wouldn't hesitate to grab it.

Even higher, the lens price DB has two sold on eBay in the last year:

Oct. 2011 E to E+ for $1763US.
Feb. 2012 M- to N for $2160US.

What a beauty. I got my Canon FD 135/2.0 for $225. That quarter stop and * will have to elude me.

From the little I have seen this seems to be one of the lenses with the most purple fringe or CA(whichever one) I have seen on digital camera bodies. The specs are nice but it doesn't seem to want to be on a DSLR.

Are you sure your thinking of the same lens?
The K135 2.5 has this reputation, but I don't think the * does tbh, (I don't own one btw, but if I could, I would )

A couple examples at the top of this page, I obviously have not done any scientific testing and do not own the lens, I just feel like this is the type of stuff I have seen from the lens. I know these are contrasty areas but I would think it would be better than this.
