    It's metal - not plastic.

    "Featuring a completely new optical design and a built-in Silent Wave
    focus motor, it also includes Nikon's top-end goodies including a 9-bladed
    diaphragm, Nano Crystal coating for the reduction of flare, a magnesium
    alloy body shell and weathersealing."

    Would you buy one if it was 1/3 the price?

  5. Personally, no, as I don't need such a lens, but you have a good point
    about perceived value.

    Unless we make a living in photography, do we NEED any equipment?

    But, my comment was directed to Rich's constant carping about value. I
    wonder exactly what photo equipment he does buy. (No I don't stay awake
    wondering about that.)

    I hear aircraft spotters continually saying they "need" such and such an
    airframe.....
    I thought Rich borrowed all his stuff from the shop where he was employed?

    Cheers,
