I will be keeping my F/FA 50s regardless - that rectangular lens hood just oozes mojo....

I could be swayed if Ricoh or Pentax increased the font size on the hood by a considerable amount, just like on the FA telephotos and 645 lenses.

Now up to £999 .... Never could understand Amazons pricing.

A few weeks ago they had the new D-FA 21mm for less than £800.

I got my 31mm half price from Amazon. Then it went back to full price again!

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

Tempting as Amazon’s prices are I never buy photo equipment there as I think they undermine other retailers who provide a much better service, as well as a physical presence where you can inspect products before you buy.

I agree with your sentiment RobL, but to balance that Amazon do offer a 30 day returns policy for any reason, so there's p[lenty of time to examine the goods.

Personally, I buy from SRS almost all the time and I'm always very glad to do so!
Best regards, John

Amazon tend to lower prices to move on stock when there is only a few left, then when they buy em in again you get the higher price, it's always worth waiting, I recently picked up a brand new albeit silver 15mm Ltd for £279. (Silver should always cost less cause it's, well yukkie!)

That's an absolute steal at that price - If I didn't have one already I'd snap it up
