The earlier M42 Tomioka version is usually listed with very high 'buy it now' prices. The later MC version, which I think is only available for PK mount, often sells for less than GBP200; still a premium over the 1.4 lenses but relatively affordable for a 1.2

Yep -it was the the Tomioka version I saw. Will keep a lookout for the PK as I already have a stack of those.

BTW do you know if this is the same as Porst 55/1.2 ? Similar pricing but a few available and in K-Mount with some mention of Cosina in some listings.

They are apparently different lenses:

Revuenon 55mm f/1.2 has the following specs:

  • Focal length: 55mm
  • Filter size: 58mm
  • Diaphragm blades: 9
  • Aperture range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • Optical formula: 7 elements in 6 groups

The Porst Color Reflex 55mm f/1.2:

  • Focal length: 55mm
  • Filter size: 55mm
  • Diaphragm blades: 8
  • Aperture range: f/1.2 to f/22
  • Optical formula: 6 elements in 4 groups

I 've not tried the Porst so can't comment on how they compare
