Collector's item? I'm still haunting ebay for lenses. I have a 50mm f1.4, but it took me..... oh, I don't know how many years to get one. It was on a Canon EF that I bought a few years back. What I bought with the A1 way back when was an 85mm f1.8. Later on at a camera store sale, I bought the 35~70 f3.5-4.5 and 70~210 f4 zooms. On ebay, I've bought a power winder, 50mm macro with the 2X extender, and my latest aquisition, the wireless remote shutter release.

I want a long lens. I'd "settle" for the 500mm f8 mirror, but I'd LOVE to be able to afford what I call one of the "white" lenses, say a 600mm.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
