Re: And you thought Pentax lenses were expensive

May well be worth it if it is optically sound across the frame at f/1.4

Pricing is always subjective, what is seriously overpriced for one person may seem like good value if it delivers what another person needs. Zeiss seem confident that this will be an optical standout, if its the best in its class why not charge a premium? 

And its only direct competitor is the DA* 55 f/1.4, perhaps a comparison can be done on one the four thirds cameras. Would be interesting to see if it is worth 4 times the DA*, very doubtful but it is possible.
