Anybody has any idea what is the fair price for a minty 85 1.4? Those of you who bought this lens used recently, would you please chime in too?

mine was purchased recently at Pro Photo in Portland...test fired and put back in the box, then i bought it. for all practical purposes -> Brand new for about 800 bucks..so like nykonian said "$800-$900" works...;-)

Nute,

That's a nice 20% savings for you. I paid $999 new from Amazon. I think I got the last one though. It said "only 1 left." which I never believed before, but now it says $1450 and a 1-2 month wait. Guess I was lucky.

It seems that many lenses sell for about 80% of their original price, is that about right? If so, I wonder if it is worth the bit more to get the warranty?
