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.

I would be significantly more intrigued by this lens if it were priced competitively with, say the Sigma 50. As I said in the other thread, refurbs are cropping up in the $1400 range, which is getting closer. But I feel $1700 is too much (for me) for a normal prime.
