Nikon really needs to replace the 135mm. As far as the 200 F2G, this is the same level as the Zeiss 135mm but as far as price, makes the zeiss seem like a killer deal.

The price of the Zeiss 135/2 couldn't be more irrelevant to that of the Nikon 200/2 VR. That's like trying to compare the Nikon 50/1.8 to the Zeiss 135/2.

Your math sucks. It would be closer to comparing a 91.125mm to the 135 or about 32.5% longer. So for 32.5% you would pay about 2.74 times the money. If you got the Zeiss, you would have a extra $3698 to spend. With that money you could buy a sigma 120-300mm F2.8.

Also, i know its a different lens. You missed the whole point, we were talking about color correction not the length of the lens.
