From my brief play, I already LOVE the character this lens has.
I am not fond of over saturated, over sharpened image crap.
This will be the perfect lens for me.

Could find someone selling his copy for some 1800$... Too good to be true I'm afraid, will go check and try it tonight but if true then it's really really quite a bargain :o

Too expensive for that ugly bokeh. (cut circles+onion)

So it turned out it was a nearly mint copy! This lens looks and feels awesome! First test shot here.

This lens is really a "light sucker", can really shoot in low light keeping a very low ISO. This lens is quickly becoming my favorite non landscaping lens.

That's a steal at that price! I would think you could double your money on it quite easily!

Here are a couple showing the effects this lens displays with light sources in the frame.

I quite like those "rainbow" effects light sources produce :D

This one was taken in almost complete darkness (apart form the tiny bulbs in the background).

This lens is so awesome to shoot in almost complete darkness and still keep low ISO.

Just bought one off eBay. I hope the transaction goes smoothly and that the lens is in the condition as listed. *fingers crossed*
