    It is an SMC 50mm 1.2, I decided not to go back and check it out (about a 30 min drive). if it's still there next time I visit the store, I might make a lowball offer Thanks guys.

    Plus... If it is still there when you go back, you have another plank to bargain on: It's been there three months with no buyers.

    I recently had to take my SMC 50mm f1.2 apart for fungus on several of the internal elements. It's not difficult, though there is a trick to removing the front element assembly should you need to. Email me for details if you should buy it and need them.

    Living in warm, damp south west England, fungus in lenses and on slides is a way of life. As has been said dismantling fixed focal length Pentax lenses isn't too hard, though it sometimes necessitates making up some simple tools. The business of fungus affecting the glass permanently is IMHO much over-stated. I use carbon tetrachloride as both a cleaner and Killer, not forgetting to wipe every part of the lens before reassembly. The price seems pretty excessive for a lens with a known problem, but in view of the extent of the problem as I read it, are you sure it's mould/fungus and not coffee/beer/Coke that someone's spilled on it?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    I dunno, there's also a body involved, Which one? beats me. At $150 it's not a bad deal even if you have to spend another $50-$75 to clean it.

    To be honest I don't remember what the body was, it was probably an ME Super or K1000...something like that. It did have a digital back on it.
