I got myself an MIJ version of the lens about almost 2 years ago. I bought it for $600. I could had gotten one used for less money around $450 or $500. but mind you that my copy is in AAA+++ condition which comes complete with the box. not a single trace of use, scuffing, nor rubbing.

I think nowadays, you can rarely get one which is MIJ, especially if the AIV versions are in production. which makes MIJ more valuable even more now than then.

I believe the reproduction of the lens is due to the renewed growing demands and popularity of the lens. personally, with the exception of focal length difference and AF function but for similar lens purpose, it's an FA31 on steroids at a lower cost (as long as it's not brand new).
