Hi, I am very interested in this lens and have read very positive reviews of it.

I wonder how much does it cost today? It has been released back in 1994, that's pretty long ago.

Regards.

This lens goes for between $350-$400 USD new. Used the price will be slightly lower. A lens' age does not influence price that much. Quality lenses tend to maintain their value fairly well, much better than camera bodies.

Thanks rjseeneyfor the quick reply.

I think US $350 for thatprimeshould be alright with me since I might be planning to get a Nikon D50 body ($500-550 USD) with it. I know 85 mm = 127.5 mm on the Nikon D50 1.5 crop factor CCD, but that makes it all the more cooler for a fast telephoto with superb results! With the D50's worry free high ISO range, I don't know what I can do with that killer combination! :|:|
