I am not yet over the hump of spending 7K on an electronic camera. 4K on a lens that lasts for decades and never depreciates? Sure. But the camera? Tougher call for me.

I think this is a reasonable response and logical for a majority of people.

It kind of comes down to use value. How much does one plan on using the tool and for what purpose. If the tool is associated in part with your career and/or daily life, then you will end up with more use value from it despite the initial expense. The more you use something the more value you get out of it. By the time it's obsolete then you (hopefully) will have received the maximum use value out of it and the monetary value is no longer an issue.

btw, it's a very nice lens. You were lucky to find it in inventory.
