Just for interest-- check these listings (just finalized) on the hated auction site-- the numbers were 150492739374 and 150492735129. Some of you may have been watching them. Both these lenses appear to be in new condition, with the original blue/white boxes and hoods. The first of these is an early 55/1.2 chrome nose aspherical, the one with the blue 'AL' labelling, which is a pretty rare and sought-after trinket. It sold for US$2550. The other is a 24/1.4 aspherical SSC breechlock, which went for a mere $1275. I guess it shows the collectors haven't lost their interest in high-end FD stuff, anyway! Chances are that neither one of the darn things will ever make an exposure, which seems crazy, but I guess it's their money, their lens.
