I just did a search on past prices on yabe for the 21 f2.  WOW!  It is just 
crazy  ------2800-6K!!!


I wonder what happened.  I bought mine from Mike Hatem and it was a decent one 
but not an uber sharp wide open copy.  At that point the Canyon wide-angle 
glass was comparatively crummy and I could see how they demanded a 
premium---$750 range then.  I think they went down in price after superb WA's 
were readily available but no clue when/why the price went into the 
stratosphere.  Can only be collectors, one assumes.  There is a list around on 
the list as to how many were made in each variation, not that I can immediately 
find it.  Anyone know where it lives?

Closest thing I recall is the multi-coating lists on R. Lee Hawkins' site The original is long gone, but lives on on the Wayback Machine. <http://web.archive.org/web/20110720025740/http://brashear.phys.appstate.edu/lhawkins/photo/photo.shtml>

Not much use for a lens with so few entries, though.
