Sorry for the Dutch phrase. Boils down to list 2,299, but likely a few hundred euro cheaper in the shops.

Not really € 2579,00 it says at CameraTools.nl

Which is a ridiculous price to pay for this lens.
Made me actually decide to switch to Nikon and go dual brand for a while.

All or most shops quote 2.579,- and of course you can pre-order only since the lens is not in stock yet. No doubt the price will we lower once it actually becomes available.

Still, arond 2k is a lot when the mkI sells for 1.079,-...... a lot of people will wrestle the question whether mkII is twice as good, especially without the much aniticipated IS.
