New Zeiss 55/1.4 lens for Nikon FF

I just saw this announcement for a new 55mm f/1.4 lens that promises "a new family of high-performance," "superior to conventional FF lenses," and "image performance that until now has only been seen with medium-format systems." Sounds like a perfect combination to the high resolution D800(e).

But the irony is that I just placed an order for my first-ever Zeiss lens today (ZF21mm) for my first-ever FF camera D800E, and they are announcing a brand new lens system that will basically supersede the current generation of Zeiss lenses for Nikon? It's not too late for me to cancel the order yet, but should I?
