I've been watching for a good deal on this lens since the reviews here rate it so much higher than the 1.4 (and it's cheaper, too). Maybe it's those reviews that seem to have driven the price lately beyond what the average shows. I forgot that I was actually watching this eBay listing until I saw your post. The listing has ended now . In case anyone is confused about why the picture shows 5 but the listing says 4 sold and 0 available, it's because one was sold in a prior listing. I guess the seller didn't update the pictures.

Oh well, the search continues

I got mine for $100. Though I did have to make a 200 mile round trip to get it. So add $20 for gas. Mine was used, but hardly used. It also came with a camera and another lens...

About what I paid for my NOS one a few years ago. Great lens, I should take it out more.

The FA50 f1,7 is pretty rare, that accounts for a large part of the price.

Come on - it's statements like that which contribute to this madness. Oh how I long for the days when a little online research yielded gems & treasures that few were apt to find.

Seriously, I do know that Pentax made far fewer of these than the 1.4, so as I have said, my quest continues...
