Noticed this jewel on eBay

I have one but it took 10 years to find it.

At that price, it would take me 10 years to pay for it.

K-1 or the best AF lens EVER made by Pentax?

much cheaper (and providing the same IQ) would be to pick up an old Nikkor 200mm Micro then use an "Adaptist" adapter to mount on your Pentax K. If you were looking at only macro you could skip the Adaptist route and just get a Nikon->PentaxK "macro" adapter without glass from China for about $9. Here's an eBay listing for an AI Micro Nikkor from Japan: Excellent Nikon AI s Micro Nikkor 200mm F 4 AIS from Japan | eBay. Not sure why anyone would pay $3k for such a lens. But hey, I'm just being practical.

The description says it is designed for digital cameras and has SDM autofocus. A rare find indeed

Apparently wrong. Or it is a prerelease copy?

Of course it's wrong! It makes me dubious about the whole listing.

I wish .... I had won the powerball... or it was in Canadian $ too!


Looks in very very very good condition though!


the SDM info was probably generated or copied over in eBay... If I was a collector's with no money constraints, I'd buy it... but that's not the case... (for the money I mean)

Same seller has a PENTAX-A SMC 50mm f/1.2 for sale. Tempting.
