    I bet it makes an awesome paperweight, too. Just kind of top-heavy...

    excuse me guys, allow me to count the zeros on my bank account...

    $30k for a lens? ill take two. make that three, puggles my show terrier needs a new chew toy.

    edit: but really the price is ridiculous but im not surprised to see it sell for so much because of its exclusivity and prestige. not my cup of tea (id rather have gear i am not afraid to use) but more power to the buyer if its truly what he wants.

    It's not an ideal design as it's retro focus, so it's not going to be cheap to make for that reason. I'd rather have a higher quality true wide angle lens for a rangefinder camera.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I wonder how come there are no knockoffs from China. I'd get one for $19.99, especially if it had something like "Nikorr" or "Nykkor" engraved.
