yep 50mm 1.4 doesn't have nano ,but once nikon coats nano layer over one of its lens elements, I bet it will be priced for $1500 above hehe
Had to comment on the "price" of glass. In the 1960's I had two "F" bodies, and when I did the calculations, I paid about $2900 each for these in today's dollars. And the Gossen Luna Pro light meter... about $1500 in today's dollars. In other words, I worked about two and a half weeks to buy an "F" body, a week and a half for the meter. Anyone can do the math and see that the "bang for the buck" in today's equipment is pretty good.
Having said all that, OH MY GOSH, THESE LENSES ARE WAY TO EXPENSIVE!!
On to the subject.... mote the f/stop of some of the highest quality glass around..... the Leitz stuff... Summarit-S 70mm f/2.5 ASPH CS Lens for $6,000.00. And NOT VR. Admittedly, it has a shutter, but the Nikkor glass is not really out of line if one does this as a pro and hopefully gets something in return.
