Olympus Zuiko Reflex 500/8

Olympus Zuiko introduces this lens in 1982. I haven't really found much about this lens - so i guess it's pretty rare. Rumors says that this lens is one of the best - and that second hand prices still are pretty high (eBay - buy now price Sept. 2007: 699 Euros !!!). Interesting is that it only has 5 elements in 2 groups where most have 7 in 4 groups or more.
