    They're not inflated. They're just really good lens. Don't judge them based on the focal lengths.

    28mm f2.8D AF, LN- $138.50 ($235)

    50mm f1.8 AF, EX+ $90 ($115) 1.8D
    85mm f1.8D AF, EX+ $312.50 ($400)
    105mm f2.5 Nikkor-P AI, EX $52.00 (Unknown)
    135mm f2.8 AI, EX $177.50 ($170) AIS


    17-35mm f2.8 AF-S, EX $1250 (no bids) ($1500)
    17-35mm f2.8 AF-S, LN- $1220 ($1500)
    24-85mm f2.8-4D AF, EX $399.99 ($565)

    80-200mm f2.8 AF ED, LN $810.00 ($890)

    As you can see the prices are somewhat resonable. The only one over the new price is the 50mm 1.4D, unsure why, but that is a good lens. All of them are good lenses.

    Easily confused

    Lens names are really confusing because they are so subtly different. Shopping and pricing is also a pain since it is hard to find a full list of lenses with prices. I got fed up and created a quick Nikon compatible price list using amazon widgets.
