Picked up the E-Mount touit 12mm and 32mm lens combo today, but act fast if you want it.

The deal that was originally set to expire at Aug 31, 2014 is now expiring on June 15, 2014. I verified from 2 independent camera sources

A really stupid marketing move if true: nobody will buy the lenses now at RRP they know that they are really worth $460 each!

This will also have totally killed sales in Europe with the pricing we have to put up with

At least that is the case for me... I was looking to see if I could find the money somewhere, but if I can it won't be but 15 June. After that there would be no way I would pay 'full price' for one of these lenses

We all suckered up and bought the two Touit lenses for about $450 each.

Great campaign, Zeiss! You most likely sold out of inventory... !!

Next time they will just plan for this: overprice the lens - get good reviews - then drop price in half on a bundle, and everyone will jump on the deal.

Heck, didn't they just do this for the E1670Z as well?

I think we are all being played

The only solace is that these are probably end-of-life sales. The replacement product will be .. expensive again...
