Some of you may have seen this already but I'm surprised it's still there. I've read that this lens is fantastic and I've never seen one in good condition for this price.

The optical design was codenamed 'Hollywood' I think.

Legend of a lens. No signs of decentering on my copy and I have no reason to believe others won't be just as good. Sharp at f2

100% crop K-5 Jpeg No PP f/8

It's a luxury lens. Every time I sell mine, another one pops up that's in better condition :/

How much do they usually go for?

Around 600 ish. More if your very lucky like Ned Bunnell (former president of Pentax U.S.) who recently stumbled across a NEW ONE!

Mine went for 1000 earlier in the year. Thought I'd maybe snap this one near 600 but it wasn't to be!

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

The 55mm f/1.4's used to always go for around 500. One of the best standard lenses ever made. I have a copy of a test of nearly all 50-58mm lenses done by AP years ago. Looking at the LPMM graphs the Pancolar wiped the floor with them all, but as usual with magazines they didn't like to say much about East German lenses..... so they didn't

I always wanted the camera and lens. but they were too expensive.
