Rare A-35/2

I am looking for the A-35/2.8 and came across its counterpart the f2 on ebay. Take a look.

There's one here on the marketplace--for a much better price.

If you're located in Europe, you might be interested in this one,

I can provide translation / proxy services, if needed.

Why would you buy this over a FA 35/2 of which I have seen a few sale here now and then?

You are both right, but I like MF and dislike plastic mount.

I recently bought the M35/2.8 and the focal length is perfect for me, coming from film with standard lens.

I've got a lot more MF than AF lenses, but couldn't see paying more for an A lens over the same optical formula F or FA one.

On the lens reviews there is no F 35mm and the FA is far more expensive than the A I'v been looking at.

In my experience, SMC A 28mm F2.0 is rarer than this

You are correct, there is only a FA 35/2 - I hadn't checked the lens database before posting. I've seen them for sale here in the $300+ range.

You may be right but I am not interested in the rareness of lenses, only 35mm and A 35mm in particular, preferably f2.8.

The A 35mm f2.8 I saw here in the marketplace, was for sale for $160. Sadly it's been sold.
