Thanks to all of you so far, particularly to Summicron 1. The Hexar is being offered by a guy in Britain for $1300 plus shipping - I think that's a ridiculous sum ( and I understand he hasn't had any takers in the couple of years he's had the ad up ), but I'm trying to get an idea of what a more reasonable and achievable price would be for it. Anyone know much about this lens; its alleged rarity and an idea of what a fair price might be?
