    I noticed it similarly with the Pany 20mm F1.7, I bought one last week for $349. The one I had previously ordered was canceled (damaged by shipper before the could get it to the dock) was something like $369. When I did a little searching I noticed that a couple of other sellers had it for $349. Either way not too bad but I still think it's a bit over priced.

    I personally feel it should be more in the $100-$150 ballpark for what you get. Same thing applies to the much over priced VF-2.

    That lens is made better then lenses in the 100-150 range like the ef 50 1.8. It really should be a 250 dollar lens. Very similar to the AF-s 35 1.8 and the new AF-s 50 1.8. All in the 250-290 dollar range.
