J. Uhl Foto Hobby in Germany is currently listing one for DM 19,998/$13,800.
Tamarkin tried to find one for his Auction, which is to be conducted later
today but was unable to locate a sample of this rare jewel.

No, the price hasn't fallen a bit.  THus, no one but a bloody fool -- or a
J. Paul Gotrocks sort -- would or could afford to USE an 8/15 Hologon either
as an M lens or in the original Contarex body.  For USE, the G1/G2 lens is a
winner, but not the original!
