I was in a bit of a "funk" when I posted yesterday on the pricing. Thinking a bit more about it, It certainly could be worse, but I still don't quite understand how a jump of only 15mm from the 50 1.8G commands a price more than double that of the AF-S 50 1.8G
My math says the "jump" is 35mm from 50mm to 85mm.
If you don't think it is good value for the $ then just don't buy it, all the more available for those who do want it.

If it's anything like the 50 1.8G, I'm getting one.
Got mine today, and while I didn't have the stopwatch out and it wasn't very scientific, the 50/1.8G is very slightly faster lock to lock (infinity to near focus to infinity) than the 85/1.8G is on my D700.

I have a feeling I'm going to love this lens.
