    I would be interested in the market price as well.  I picked one up abut
a year ago.  There is an article about this lens in the LHSA Viewfinder -
don't know the year but I,m sure there is an index.  My lens came with a
nice leather holding case.  It should also come with a pistol grip as this
zoom is quite large/heavy.  I don't unfortunately have the pistol grip.  I'm
not sure why I bought it as it is very heavy - but it is such a weird lens
that I bought it on a lark for $250 but have seen the rare ad for this lens
for >$1000.  Let me know if you get any answers
