    The lens is a hot item. I think David Burnett is shooting with an Aero Ektar. I've head they're radioactive so you should give it to me instead

    Asking prices on Ebay vary from $25 to $1000 for the same item sometimes. Especially "BUY IT NOW" offers: these are almost always unrealistic prices.
    However, there is one auction for this lens (with issues) with no price limit, worth following to get a more realistic estimation. See:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Koda...item257dcaec50
    You can also check the SOLD items, see:
    http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?_from...H_Sold=1&rt=nc
    At quick glance $300 seems a nice price for a seller, but with patience a lot cheaper is possible?

    I recently learned of this as well. I had no idea until someone mentioned it in conversation.

    Some of the info I've read said that they can be up to 3mR/hr, which as I understand it means that the lens would have to be in your pocket, 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, for 6 months straight before you'd have the recommended annual "dose".

    In any event, if there is in fact two of them, I'm hoping to trade/sell one for a Pacemaker SG body - since I sold my SG back in January.

    Don't hold that lens close to your jewels if you want kids

    Well, it's not as good as I thought... There is in fact only one lens, not two as I originally thought. But it was still $25...

    So I guess it'll sit in the display cabinet until I can purchase another SG body to mount it to.

    I want to see you get one of these monsters into your pocket. Those guys are large in size and heavy! I have one on my Pacemaker SG, I'm not able to hand hold it anymore, I HAVE to use a monopod or tripod.

    $25 is a steal, regardless of condition.

    It's been wrapped and stored for who knows how long. I'm expecting it to be in immaculate condition. She's shipping it today.

    Her father in law passed about 18 months ago and they are just now cleaning out his estate. He had an Alpa lens that I know of, but in total he had about $8k worth of lenses and gear. She took them to a dealer and they gave her half of the value. They offered her $3k and she talked them up to $4k.

    So it just arrived. WOW! It's HUGE!

    The glass doesn't seem to be brownish as I have read some are. There are some internal specks of dust, but doesn't appear to have any fungus or haze. The blades move smoothly, and the lens shade is in tact, as well as the lens cap.
    Each part of the lens is engraved with the serial number.

    She also threw in a 4x5 Polaroid back in its original box, which is pretty much useless unless Fuji starts making 4x5 miraculously again... And she also threw in a really nice cable release.

    I can't wait to get this thing on a SG!
