My bet is somewhere between $600 and $900 US. Probably depends on if it has a focus clutch like the 14mm, what type of glass it uses, etc.

I think you are right on target, Eric.  IMO it's wishful thinking to expect a price much less than $800 for a fast portrait lens of this type, especially with the 60/2.5 out there priced at $600.
