    I've have two Konica AR 50's available, an f/1.4 and an f/1.7. Both are in very good cosmetic (see photos) and excellent optical condition (no glass scratches, minimal dust, snappy blades, no haze, etc...). Both have front and back caps.

    UPDATE: the 50 f/1.7 is SOLD.
    The 50 f/1.4 is still available. However, I've noticed that this lens is missing the rubber grip for the focusing ring, so I'm reducing the price to $55. $55 for a high speed lens...c'mon people!


    Buyer pays for USPS priority shipping - CONUS only.

    Thanks!

    Apra, I live in Alaska but USPS doesn't charge any more for priority shipping here than the rest of the USA (Same with Hawaii). You're missing out on potential customers if you limit it to just CONUS. Just sayin :)

    Ha, fair enough...sorry to needlessly exclude the good folks from the 49th state. Any Alaskans who want this lens, let me know!

    I'm interested in the 1.4 but can't commit to buying anything till my payday. I'll PM you in a couple days if you still have it for sale.

    Is that the later 50 1.4 (stops down to 22, no half-stop detents?) The 1.7 is said to be sharper - what is your experience between the two lenses?

    Thanks!

    Tom, this 50 f/1.4 only stops down to f16, so I guess it is not the later model. Regarding your question about which is sharper, I haven't spent enough time with these two lenses to be able to give you an informed answer...I ended up getting some m39 lenses shortly after getting these, and I now have far more lenses than I can use, hence my desire to sell these.

    Joe, sorry I didn't update the post earlier...it's been a busy weekend, but jambaj0e did get the 50 1.7.

    The 50 1.4 is still available (which I'm surprised about...what other fast lens can you get for under $100?), and since I've just noticed that the rubber surrounding the focus ring is missing (not sure why I didn't notice that earlier), I'm reducing the price to $55. I'll update the ad accordingly. On the e-you-know-where-auction site, these are going for $60-$120, so I think it's still a fair price.

    Thanks,
    apra
