Seriously, i mean how much "better", more "bokehlicious" could the 1.0 be than current 1.2?
for this much price i would rather buy 85 1.2 ii + 135 f2 + put funds towards a flash and rest towards an additional body.
or 24-70 2.8 ii or 70-200 2.8 is ii...

I think beside "bokehlicious" people pay a bit for its rareness. I would rather safe the $$$ for the Sigma 50mm ART.

He might as well drill a hole in it and tide a string to it and make it a Christmas ornament out of it.

What makes the buyer an idiot? If people can spend money on tvs, cars, shoes, clothes, drugs, booze, video games, phones, and they have the money to spend on lenses why the hell not?

People pay more for even slower non AF lenses, just look at the Leica system.

I was thinking the same thing. Better meet near a police station or at a bank.
