I think we're probably seeing some "panic buying" by existing KM DSLR owners now, too (wanting to make sure they get the lenses they've been thinking about while they're still available -- at least with a Minolta or KM brand on 'em).

yeah, these as well as alot of lenses for minolta are getting bought out. I stopped by B&H last night and spoke with them. They have no idea as to when or if they will receive another shipment of lenses. I did however pick up a used 50 mm 1.4 last night. They only had 3 new ones left of these.

During my frantic searching for a 50mm f/1.7, I found a 50mm f/1.4 used from KEH and will be delivered today.* Considering the price for the f/1.4 was really good, should I stop searching for the f/1.7 and try to be happy considering I spent the extra cash on this lens compared to a new f/1.7 if and when it ever restocks?* *Besides, I can start taking pics of my daughter tonight and not wait for a f/1.7 to come in!

I don't see where you'd need both. Congrats on the 50mm f/1.4

I'm jealous, (I should have picked one up when they were selling for aound $100 used).. LOL
