Out of stock?

This is an interesting question. I've been considering this lens too, I'm kicking myself because at the start of lockdown London Camera Exchange had a good deal on these but I wasn't sure at the time.

Since then I've noticed a lot of places are out of stock. It made me wonder if they are running stock down in preparation for a new mkii release. It could just be supply problems due to covid.

Tbh I'm not too fussed about a mkii. The first lens has enough of a good reputation that I think I would be happy even if they did come out with an improved design. My main consideration would be what this does to prices. I wonder if the new lens would be priced higher like the other 1.4 lenses, in which case it probably wouldn't push down the price of this old lens much at all.

But you have to find somewhere that has it in stock first!
