The 28 f2.8 goes for a lot of money these days.

Which 28 mm f/2.8? As far as I know, they only made 28 mm f/3.5 and f/1.8 lenses. The high prices of the f/1.8 lens are quite logical, given that Konica cameras were not sold a lot and there never was a body catering to professionals. Thus, this "professional" lens is rather rare today. Regarding IQ, the Konica AR 28 mm f/1.8 UC  is not superior to more common lenses made by Canon, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Zeiss, so given the horrendous prices, it has become a collector item.
