So I got my DFA* 50/1.4. It's working great. I thought I'd check back on this post. Pentax still hasn't ended? Fascinating.

You could say that your FA 50/1.4 will just have to do also.

This bad boy is limited availability, while the D FA will be available later in the year. I wouldn't wait ;)

Could be a good opportunity to pick up this lens.



Pentax 135mm F/1.8 SMC A* K Mount Manual Focus Lens {77} at KEH Camera Store

In a related thread, there's a 12% off code which looks like it applies: KEH 12% Off Bargain, Excellent & Excellent+ - PentaxForums.com

Edit:
I just tried it, and the total with discount is $1,718.64

FA* 250-600 $6000 in seemingly good condition

I guess the exterior wouldn't matter to me. I'm going to take my lenses into harsh conditions, and not care if the exterior gets scratched. I'm not running an optical museum; I want to use my gear. :D

I suspect that the foam decomposed around the lens, and damaged the finish. Also, you're certainly going to have to find a 49mm filter to replace the one with cleaning marks. As to the lens itself. Do you care if the outside isn't pristine?

I dunno, I bought a FA* 600 with much worse finish, clearly from much use, but the glass is great.

Folks, I'm seriously holding myself back from hitting the buy it now button. If I didn't already own one, I would today. If you've been in the market, I believe now is the time.

Hmm... Pentax still in business? Still selling cameras? Even releasing new lenses?

Looks like Amateur Photographers was wrong. No doom and gloom today; nothing to see here. Please move along.

Exactly. There's probably a price point where it's worth a gamble. Even with etched glass you might be happy with the result. I suggest this is closer to $1500 delivered.

I have to admit, I'm completely lost by the "Telephoto Zoom Lens" and the "Large Aperture Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens". These seem to be covered areas...

The standard is smart phones. They are capsizing the 80% of the market that just wants to take pictures of their kids and movies. The other 20% wants something better than can be delivered from a teeny sensor.
