It is worth what the market will pay. Obviously the seller thinks it is worth said amount and hopes a buyer thinks so too.

You can get just a case for one for 100 too!
As to whether the lens is worth it, depends on how much you want one. What beats me is the 130 postage from Warrington! It's not in Australia or on the moon.
The US forum suggests around $3,000 - 4,000 is the going rate, so no, double its true value.

Not sure I'd pay that, for the postage, might drive over to collect...

Where is it? I can see the case but no lens shows up when I do a search.

Depending on whether its the F* or the FA* I would say it's about right. I wouldn't sell mine for less. Only trouble is it's hard work carrying it around .. weighs a ton.

You can have mine for half that if you like, not the cleanest version though!

Do you have a link?

Seems it was withdrawn from sale yesterday morning.
The seller appears to be doing a lot of dealing for someone not listed as a business seller.

He's a reputable and serious collector and also a well known member on here who also has rare lenses for sale in the PU Classifieds.

The item search isn't working anymore so here's the link...
