The Holy Grail: here one moment, gone the next.
The Holy Grail has vanished! Yes, just like in the legends of King Arthur, the Holy Grail made a brief appearance to the disbelief of our eyes only to disappear, without warning, just as fast as it materialized. No this isn't talk of that Holy Grail, but the 13mm f5.6 AI Nikkor that made a brief appearance on Ebay on Monday. So yes, anyone with butt loads of cash who wanted to (probably) spend $30,000 on the rarest, widest 35mm/FF digital-capable Nikkor optic ever produced is out of luck, sorry.
