$499? Talk about a find! Someone obviously didn't know their lens. (I hope it wasn't of questionable source.)

Just got my 50mm f/1.0 last week. Such an awesome lens... Pictures of my girls.

Picked it up for $499 off eBay.

Welcome to the club :) $499? I don't even see a completed auction for close to that within the last month. If so, that's an incredible steal. I got my second copy for $2500 which I thought was extremely cheap.

^ Love the last photo :)

Somehow I got unsubscribed with the AMASS move.
Still lusting after this lens.

Use to see them listed used here in Japan even for upwards of $5,000 USD but now I don't.
Been here over two years. Never seen one in person. And I check around. It really is hard to find now, outside of eBay.

:cry: Need cash funds! I would love to own this, but I am traveling home for the holidays and not in a position to buy one right now.

Thank you. It's a very unique, lovely lens. I sold it recently and got a 200 1.8 again. I like using them both but can't afford them at once, or at least justify it :)
