It has been a long time since this lens was first announced back in February but we now have a price and preorder options! This lens which I had the chance to check out myself (though we could not take pictures with it) looks and feels like a great quality lens, and similar to the current 70-200 F4 option. Given the awesome quality from the other 85mm F1.4 and 20-70 F2.8 G-master lenses, I am really looking forward to getting my hands on this new beast. Availablity is still up in the air but pre-order are underway and the price is set to a squirm inducing $2599! Hopefully the results can justify the high price.
