I don't think the price of the current lens will go down. If a new one arrives it will probably be a highly corrected ASPH lens without the glass/aberrations that makes the Noctilux so unique. It will in effect be a faster version of the Summilux 50mm ASPH so only speed junkies will like it. If anything I think the price of the current lens will increase once people realize that the "look" of the old lens isn't being reproduced in the new one (if indeed there is to be a new one).
