Pentax 100mm f2 M42 on Australian eBay
Posted By: p38arover, 02-13-2017, 03:06 AM

The price is way out of my league. Wife says "NO!"

There are no reviews of this lens (it is listed) on Pentax Forums.

Adam, it might worth asking the seller for some pics.

See eBay item no. 232216601997 EX RARE Asahi Pentax Takumar 100mm f2 100/2 Vintage Telephoto SLR Screw M42 Lens | eBay

Are you freakin' KIDDING me?

One stop slower, but with K mount, modern coatings, auto aperture, auto focus, 1:1 macro capability and a 49mm filter diameter. I'll keep my DFA100WR thanks. At 1/10 the price.

not a lot. this lens is super duper rare - a real collector piece. but the price asked makes this 'unobtanium' for me and most pundits.

With this listing price, seller should at least post some better pictures of the lens.

It's got the wrong front lens cap, so I'd ask for 1K off!

Well, it's still available... The high shipping charge is probably holding buyers back.

It looks like the seller has another exotic lens -- I think the second picture shows an Angenieux 90/1.8 in the background (the one with the three rings). I've seen that lens sell for several thousand (insert your currency) on eBay.

This lens has been up for sale for over 5 months now, the original price was AU$9,999. Real rare Takumar (M42) 100/2 on ebay at $9.999! -

The seller has listed other items both on EBay and here. (No, it's not me)

Wow, you don't see one of them every day. I can't image anyone paying that for it though, no matter how rare it is.

You'd think they would have taken better photos of the lens and some more inspired sample photos with it.
