About that 75mm lens

This is the ideal lens to buy used.

Many people bought it because it really is an outstanding lens that got spectacular reviews, then they discovered they weren't using it very much. So they sold it off to some lucky person who wants the lens but cannot justify the full list price of $899.

I bought mine used several years ago for $600, and I have seen them on ebay and Craigslist going for as low as $450 lately. And I am glad I have the lens.

This is really a specialty lens in every sense of the word. Outstanding at what it does, but you might find that you don't use it often enough to justify the cost. But if you need the speed at this focal length, then nothing else will do.

You might feel differently if you snagged one at half the original price.
