I'd probably buy this lens if the focusing ring wasn't so small...

That's crazy, even given today's prices!

Wow. I bought mine for something like $1300.00 Canadian. It had been used as a demo lens by a sales rep for a couple of years.

Pentax built this in the past. Wonder what primes they will build in the future.

It would be a no brainer to rebuild this as is + WR even with MF it should be fine as long as it remains a * designated lens. This thing will sell like a hot cake even at $1796 (their magic number).

Is Pentax/Ricoh listening?

Given this lens's reputation, I'd think that they could double the price and it'd still sell.

Yeah, and I would be dreaming if I thought I could get that price for mine, but I would have to think about it if it was offered
