The last one was the limited 55/1.2 "100 Jahre" Planar that sells for
around 3000 € today used.

I got a 58mm f/1.2 for $150. $40 for a focus confirmation adapter and voila....nirvana for under $200.

(Of course, it's manual focus, is very soft at f/1.2, and has no stop before f/2...but hey, it's cheap.

I suspect getting something usable at f/1 or f/1.2 wide open warrants quite the expense.
