I'm seeing one currently (well, a few days ago) for around $2200 or so + about $170 S/H, from Japan.

I've had a lot of fun with lunar photos and other subjects that don't include fast action. It's amazing that photographers back in the day were able to pull off such great action shots with this lens.

Split-mirror focusing prisms helped.  Also, standards were lower because they had to be, and because no-one was "pixel peeping".
