This is a VERY limited production lens intended for photo-journalists.
Thus, the availability on the used market is quite limited, which keeps
prices up, up, up -- I don't believe I've ever seen a used one below $1400
(and I passed that one up, to my regret).  I'd be surprised if we had more
that two or three folks on the LUG who had a 1.4/75 -- I just wish I were
among their number!
