OK - $4000 for a for an all manual 50mm f1.4 lens.  Adorama shows a summicron f2.0 for $7350, an old summilux f1.4 for $3995, and the noctilux f0.95 for 10,995 (all manual).  The Canon cinema 50mm lens is $4700. 
Guess if you want to play with the big boys, you have to step up to the plate!

Manual focus is nothing you can take 100 photos in a hurry, so I guess this
separates boys from men ;) I never got *any* AF-Lense with the same smooth
focusring as on manual ones...

...there seems even to be an advantage of manual focussing:

One word:  WOW!

This lens is SO CLOSE to medium format...  Even the D800 isn't enough to fully utilize the lens.  You get the resolution, but not the tonal range.

Again:  WOW!

Your "WOW-ing" is meant satirical, right?

The linked picture is just another addition to the gazillion of poorly composed, ultra-boring cat pictures on the net. I hope it is taken with an iphone since it would be an insult if it were to come from somebody allowed to use a $ 4k Zeiss lens or a MF camera. ;-)
