Lots of us are excited about the upcoming 56mm f/1.2 Fuji lens. Assuming it is as optically excellent as we all expect, what's the MAXIMUM you would be willing to pay for one?

No more than $499. We are not talking about full frame Canon L lenses, are we?

You know you do make a very valid point. Nikon's new updated 85mm 1.8 is around $500 and a very very good lens. The build quality on that lens isn't as nice as the fuji's but optically that lens is probably better than any of the Fuji lenses I've used. Unless it's their best lens they shouldn't charge anything more than $700

Prepare to be disappointed.

then Fuji may be prepared that they won't get my money. The lens would cost no more than $250 to make.
