Not much time left... are they really that expensive, I wouldn't have thought it would go for such a price.

It is fairly rare, but even so, it is a huge price.

£260, and no I didn't bid on it. Out of my price range long before the end of the auction. I would really like one to add to my K collection, but not at that price.

Womble, a lucky escape.

Let me know if a K series 50/1.4 appeals.

Wow £260 and then to think you can get a new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 for a £100 more

I can only assume that the collectors are pushing the prices up on these - it may be a very nice lens but that's ridiculous money for an old manual prime.

Weirdly the 35mm lenses don't seem to go too mad, which is odd as with the crop factor they're equivalent to the classic 50mm.

Collectors do want certain lenses and will pay the price just as seen here

It won't fit a K mount but it shows what figures can be achieved if deemed desirable.

Another 30mm

If that last one sells for the starting bid it isn't too bad for a clean black MX with case along with the 30mm. The original rear lens cap and body cap are included which suggests a camera that has been well looked after.

Its in first class condition, Its mine I didn't want to sell it, but I have just purchased a DA*60-250 and need to recoup some finances, so i'm sacrificing this one and I already have an FA 31 ltd

I certainly hope it fetches more than the starting price, it has 68 watches but nobody willing to pull the trigger yet.

Sorry Kris (womble) I know I was going to offer this to you but I think it will go for a similar price as the OP's link.
