Holy cow. I cannot believe the prices on these things. My husband bought  Canon 500 f4 lens a few years ago and we thought it outrageous priced back then. He saved for years for it, by the way. But now it's small potatoes in comparison

These are all specialty lenses and not at all the lenses that the amateur is ever apt to have, or need. Actually, lenses have never been as reasonably priced as they are now. And with computers cutting years or even decades off the design-time for new lenses, we are in a golden age of high-quality lens affordability.
