for a gray import, price should be $150 or less imo.
eglobalcentral been selling it for $150/€150 for the past few months. check their sites (eu,us,fr), it's still available.
Anyway, this is a must-have lens in my daily-carry bag - or back pocket..
lack of aperture ring is not an issue, as imo focus is too soft wide open anyway.. stopped down to f4 , center focus is great. at f5.6 corner focus is also good.
can always use the control wheel on the back of the camera to adjust aperture when you need it.
better this than a finicky aperture ring that moves every time you reach for the focus ring...
