I picked mine up for $150 refurbed at the Sony Store in my local mall, and I got a very good copy - so for me, it was a definite bargain, especially since I added the ECu1 for another $100 - that's $250 all in for a 12mm F2.8 prime AND a 16mm F2.8 prime was a pretty solid deal.

Yes, for a good copy with the excellent Ultra-wide adaptor that is a good deal at that price (not available on either item here)

The problem is finding a good copy...
