Pentax 50mm F1.2 $999 ~ A Mistake?
Posted By: Racer X 69, 06-05-2013, 12:20 PM

I saw this on eBay: Pentax SMC 50mm F1 2 Lens Manual Focus Mount | eBay

This has to be an error. I know the faster manual primes are highly regarded and sought after, but come on. A thousand bucks for one of these? This guy is freakin' nuts!

Here is another crazy price :
Rakuten.com - Pentax 01 Prime 8.5mm f 1.9 AL IF Lens

The Q with much more expensive 02 zoom lens was $210 at Newegg a few weeks ago.
The 2 is not much more expensive in reality. The 01 is scarce because Pentax did not really make arrangements to sell it separately. That scarcity has made it cost as much, and sometimes more, than the 02.

$469.89 for just the standard lens alone when the Q with 01 standard lens has been selling for less than $300 for over a year now.

There are always aberrations in pricing, they are not exemplars but merely outliers.
