Ah, but that's where the collectors may save you, Dan. The new 
ASPH with one molded ASPH element has made your lens a bit 
rare already. A shooter probably wouldn't buy yours from you, 
but a collector may well when you're ready to give it up. They are 
fetching good prices in mint and mint- condition assuming they 
are actually selling at what folk like Chatterton are asking for
