    I think that lens is pretty rare, have never seen it show up on the buy/sell before

    any special reason why you want to go for a legacy lens?

    probably easier to source an FA 50. same focal length, same max aperture, AF and similar construction. IQ should be similar as well.

    WOW F50 1.4 at USD 270. It's a good deal. I was thinking it should be costing more towards USD 300 onwards.

    A is manual lens. F is 1st generation Autofocus lens. FA is the next generation AF lens.

    Just get the FA50/1.4
    Unless you are hunting for exotics or paying much less for the F version.

    Optically, they are similar.

    why much less? generally F is better built than FA.
    the barrel inside F is mental. FA is actually later cost-down version with more plastic parts.
