I'm looking for one of these, hoping for it to be in ok condition.

I've got feelers out in some other forums.

Keep an eye on ebay too. There was one there just a couple of weeks back. Can't remember how much, just more than I wanted to pay. May end up getting a Rokinon/Samyang etc. instead (or a Pentax FA77 Ltd)

Yep, I saw a couple here on fleabay that went for quite nice pricing, but I was away for the weekend, so couldn't monitor them. I got an offer on the german pentax forum, but the guy was obviously making an attempt at gouging. I could simply go and sacrifice some length and speed and gain AF by going DA70 as a better value.

I think the speed and FL of the 77 are great, but I can't justify the stunning price here in Germany. The Samyang is ok, but large. If I went manual, I'd sacrifice speed for the size and go for the M85.

The sigma 85 1.4 has become incredibly expensive, too. It appears that Europe got a silent price increase on the factory lenses and the other manufacturers followed. The Euro's massive troubles and devaluation are no help, either.
