ISO was high with this - hence the noise

I love this lens.  Something made me buy it 2 years ago, used, and today it's worth about $2K more than I paid.  But I can't think of selling it.  In fact I dream of obtaining it's 200mm and 600mm siblings and having a little family of them.  It's  dream to shoot with, assuming you have a monopod, or tripod with the right head.  I have a 2X and 1.4X multiplier that I also purchased used.  These really add to the lenses usefulness.

I have the oppertunity to buy one of these lenses used for about $5000 Australian. The lens nearly unused and in perfect condition. Is this a good price? I'm having trouble finding used copies of this lens online to compare the price with. 1) There doesn't really appear to be too many and 2) The search results get mixed with the version II lens. I really don't NEED the lens, though at this price it seems hard to pass up.
