If I was a pro and I was going to make money with the lens then yes I would invest in it, assuming I could make more than the lens will cost.

Other wise I don't see how you can expect a return on your investment.

As an enthusiast get the lens if you want it. No use waiting for then next one as it may never come.

It is a money depleting purchase in most cases, not an investment. We use the word 'invest' only to convince the spouse, or perhaps ourselves, it is otherwise.

The EF 50mm f/1.0, OTOH, may be an exception.
