Anyone who has doubts about this lens, just has to look at the photos of Marc Langille. I think he and Mousehill both have a number of photos with it and it is amazing. The ability to blur the background is phenomenal as well as its ability to capture macro shots with sharpness and clarity. This is the sort of lens that is way above my head and I'll pass for now. PPG.

The price isn't the thing that is funny or weird about this..the thing that it has even a shipping price for such a high purchase is what boggles me!
They should have even at least accorded free shipping..hahaha!

I just went delving through the 'archives' of the lens forum and I found a thread from beginning of last year where a member here paid the exact same price for an example of this lens. I had a faint memory about it.

So you see: 'wild' things do happen.

Maybe he is the one selling it to get his investment back?

... two eyes.
For all the lenses in my charts I open the auction, look at the lens, and only if I would bid on that lens too, I insert it into my charts.

But! Only on ebay-Germany!
The prices in Germany normally are a bit higher than in the States ...

for me it is not so astonishing,
there are people who don't have to care about money, as written before.

Sometimes a seller just has to wait when he has such a rare and special item in stock.
