Was in an OXFAM shop yesterday and noticed they were selling a number of old prime Pentax lenses. Amongst them was a 50mm 1.2. It was for sale, together with a flashgun and a Pentax fim camera (didn't notice the model),for £40. Does anyone know anything about this particular lens?

If it is really a f1.2 then buy it quick. I'll give you £50 for it plus postage

Sure it was an f1.2 rather than f1:2 ?

I thought that would be the case. Amazing the difference half a colon makes!

I am afraid I didn't notice!!
As I said, I have enough 50mms, otherwise I would have just bought it.
Thanks for the info.

Lucky you....
All I ever saw in Oxfam shops was old clothes, old videos and old people!

Simples, was it a tiny "pancake" style lens or a massive boulder with ton of glass, that could qualify as a zoom?

But yeah, thrift shops sometimes have loads of interesting things.
