    It must be the oil on the blades that makes it so expensive

    Before I even clicked on this post, I thought: "Hmmm...must be a Zeiss or a Leica."

    But hey, the seller's only trying to make a profit!

    Shipping alone from Canada for it would be something like $400.00 just for the insurance part.

    Looks like he's offering a discount on the shipping... only $59! What a bargain!

    The 1.2 noct is a pretty rare lens and this one is in great shape, but the asking price is way out of norm (it's not for sale here so we can comment on prices elsewhere). Also, given the choice among the 1.2, the 1.0 and the 0.95 ASPH I would choose the 0.95 every time.
