What's a good price to pay on Ebay for one of these?:

These are highly regarded lenses and a nice mint condition example could reach anything that anyone will pay. Could be £40, could be £90, could be more, depending on the mood of the buyers at the time and how much competition there is.
Best regards, John

So no chance of a £5 bargain then!
How often do these lenses come up 2nd hand in dealers?

You could probably buy one now if you wanted to, but watch the condition and watch the price.

I have ten ebay sales of that lens in my database ranging from £36 to £77, averaging at £56.

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

It's worth a bid, but the likelihood of winning is remote unless anyone wants to bid far more than I will be doing...

I'm also tempted by the 100mm f2.8 lenses on offer, but then I always am. Why can't I resist?
Best regards, John

The 40 is worth a bid but it'll go up quite a bit before the end, no doubt. I keep looking at SMC-M 85mm F2s but they really do go for a tidy sum. I have to resist, I've spent several months allowance in the last week or two!

Cheers, Kris.

PS There is always the FA* 85mm f/1.4 for a mere $1,248.89...

Bit of a cheek selling the 75-205 matched multiplier with the 40mm lens as if they go together...

But then you might pick up the 40mm and then can junk/pass on/sell the multiplier.

That's what I was going to do but it seems that others have the same idea, might up my bid at the last minute,but I'm not going to go crazy!

If you get it for under 40 you'll have a bargain. Good luck!
