Its the $3,000 price tag of the ASPH that doesn't work for most people....I want a 35lux, and the pre-ASPH are like $1200 and the ASPH is 3 times more expensive.

Its all so confusing. The M bodies minus the 5 are all pretty much the same. The M6 is only $900, so I may buy that, and an M2. Put a 35/50 on the M6 and a 28 on the M2.
