Clearly some people can't see this and think this lens is just a hyped up overpriced profit center for nikon. Just as clearly, these people are not who this lens was designed for, nor should they purchase it. They'd be MUCH happier with something like the sigma art.

Some people can see that but still don't think it's worth it.

Absolutely. I can see that this is a great lens, but I still say it can be manufactured pretty cheaply, and Nikon is screwing us for the image quality because they are suffering low margins elsewhere in their lineup where competition is fierce. There is no competition for this lens. If you want this particular rendering, then only this lens will do it. Ergo, "screw up the price and make some profit where we can".

Can I say it again, the images shown above are magnificent (mostly) - If only more people could access this lens it would be wonderful.
