Rare 28mm f/1.4D sighting ;)

OK I have finally, physically, seen one of them. It was offered for sale at my reputable local dealer. I spotted it, inconspicuous on the well-stocked used-lens shelf. Price tag: €1899... Crazy !

According to the owner this lens is now nothing more that a collector's item. The 24G and 35G do everything better for less, except they don"t have the crinkled metal look, he said. High prices merely reflect the low quantity of available lenses, à la Noct.
If you had the monies would you go for that baby or one of the modern ones ?
