    I thk the Pentax A*50/1.2, oops I mean Pentax A50/1.2 is a better deal.
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    This vivitar is more unique, but too bad it's difficult to find one in PKA mount.

    The lens will produce 3D image, perhaps similar with the one taken with this RBT

    Its a Tomioka (now Kyocera) 55/1.2 and has the same exterior as the Cosina version of the lens, only rebadged as Vivitar.
    The price is just ridiculous as its much less that this.
