A 50mm f/1.2 with caps EX+ KEH
Posted By: tzrenz0, 02-28-2013, 09:43 PM

Considering Keh's reputation, this is a deal for me, if I wasn't saving for the 77 and 31, I would've snatched this one.

that is too much.
I would rather take other option.

That seems a bit much compared to the typical price listed in the lens reviews: SMC Pentax-A 50mm F1.2 Reviews - A Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database.

Averages are very misleading. When one person puts in $80 and another puts in $250 five years ago and another puts in $780 this year - did the last person get ripped off? None of those listings has a condition.

Bonjour,

Seems expensive to me, because I can get one at "French Camera" for 380€, which is about $500 ...

PENTAX 50/1.2 K SMC PENTAX VON160/N

This site has some fun stuff, but I find that they are pretty pricey on a lot of their Pentax lens stock.

Allez & bon courage, John le Frog

EDIT : Sorry just realized that the KEH lens is an "A" lens

I hate to admit I got myself badly infected with LBA. I wonder what's the best word to describe it really. But I think this is not that steep for a lens graded EX+ by KEH. and it's a bloody A

well... there's one on fleabay right now... (I probably shouldn't be posting this here... lol... greatly diminishes the chance of it ending up anywhere close to my budget!) starting bid 389 US$
but in reality I doubt it will be in my budget by the end of the auction anyways... so here goes.... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/221195890782?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I had a look at that site.....they have one of the best ranges of M.F. Pentax lenses I've seen for a while.
Cheers, Pickles.
