The 5.8 f1.4 was in production in a very short time so not many were made. So I guess it will be expensive because it is a collectors item now. I have an old 20/3.5 (72mm filter size) which I have never tried. It will be interesting. It is known for not having much geometric distortion compated to the 20/3.5 (52mm filter size).

Do you know how good NX2 is to correct "errors" (CA, distortion etc.) when it does not know which lens is used?

Also interesting to see that you can control the flash output manually.
