    No personal experience with the Version II lens: I do have the version I lens, which is great. The second version is supposed to be even better, and focus closer.

    Several examples of such a lens (I forgot whether I or II) sold recently for about $800.

    I had the first version too - terrific lens, and as Brian said, the second version is supposed to be even better.

    Thank you Amin, I ordered one yesterday as there was only one on ebay uk and it had two offers but the owner withdrew it. When I looked around they seem to be in short supply so I bit the bullet and got the only one I could find in stock online!

    Second version came about when the glass for the first became too expensive. The "better" bit was marketing, as far as i can tell LOL
