The last two Zeiss lenses I've watched, 135mm, ended up extremely high.
Usualy, they were sold somewhere between 32-44 quids.
Now, they went ridiculously high. Take a look here:

Sometimes, people go crazy. Some lenses got some kind of reputation and then the prices go *boom* through the roof!
Even if a lens is good, this is sometime really insane.

In these cases, well, a really good lens in almost mint condition. Looks great on the photos and *bang* - that's it!

Sorry for my cartoon language, I just am in this kinda mood... Wink

Those sellers know the tricks.
They put in title "Zeiss... fits canon 5D" and a lot of people who normally would NOT look at manual lenses (and searches for "canon"), find it, and say "ohh... Zeiss for Canon!!"
And voila.

Something to learn Wink
