Too bad my older son is now using "the other brand" camera ... he lives just around the corner !

Is this a good price for this particulary new-looking lens?

The price is on the high side I'd say, although it's pretty hard to find a virtually 'new' copy of this lens. I'd rather pay 600 less for a used but in mint condition one.

Wondering what's wrong with a brand new DA*200 which is also cheaper.
Virtriually no SDM problems with this model.

Is rarity and perceived resale the only reason to go for the FA* ?
TBH I'm not a fan of that crappy thin silver paint.
