i knew it would not last long at that price.. even tho i think the price was high.. these seem to be selling for what you can get a new modern AF lens for..

That's the problem with cult lenses - they get a following (well deserved in this case) and that drives the price up. It sounded like it was worth what they were asking for it, but I wouldn't go much higher than that (I'd get the current Pentax macro lens instead).

For some of the well-known macro lenses (90..105mm ones) people ask prices in the 250.00 EUR(!) range - I am talking about used ones... I am happy that I've got my 90mm Viv macro for a lot less.

Got my Viv 105 thru trader Jim for the exact same price ($249) but it was new. Haven't regretted it one bit. I put a friend onto this one (thanks Roy) but it was taken before they could make a decision. The new AF's are alright I guess but for macro I go manual focus anyway.
