They get more expensive w/ age. Bought the 14-24 two weeks ago at a whopping $1,600... now the MSRP is a whopping $1,999 and most online places don't have it cheaper than $1650ish. 70-200 VR is at a MSRP of $2,199. Even the old 50mm 1.4 has raised in price. B&H's price on it went up by $75. Guess that shit wasn't a gimmick. Time to start saving more for the 85 and fisheye.
