Pentax-A SMC 28mm f/2.8 F2.8

When I was looking into buying one a couple of years ago, they were 
going for between $70 and $90 on ebay.  I decided not to go for one as I 
was actually using the 43mm limited as a longish normal, kind of like a 
58mm on 24x36mmm format.  f2.8 wasn't really fast enough for a normal 
lens anyway.  The 28mm f2.0 was much more appealing, but then they tend 
to go for $400-$600 depending on flavor and condition.
