while i agree with your pricing assessment, nexu1's photo is an f/5 shot. hard to judge bokeh on a ~50mm lens at f/5 (especially on his d5100 crop-sensor). just curious, what's the highest price you'd pay for it (if you would at all)? i feel like it would be a hot seller around $900 usd.

agreed! if it was $900, i would consider adding this to my set of lenses. I currently shoot with a set of primes (24 f/1.4, 35 f/1.4, 85 f/1.4). I wouldn't mind adding the 58 to cover the hole in the middle, but I don't believe its current price is fair for what it does. 58 is only 8mm away from a stellar group of 50mm from a variety of sources.
