The new Nikon version is $1800. If Sony keeps to form, I'll say look at about $2750.

Seem competitive compared to the Nikon.

I am lusting for the Nikon version but that is a lot of money.

Gorgeous lens. I have the 28-70mm 2.8G and I love it. This guy will be a real heavyweight (77mm vs 72mm filter size on the G, lots of glass, looks to be internal focusing & zoom same as the G). wow

Ever since Canon's 24-105 IS and 85/1.2 II, I have observed a trend towards increased lens price. I was not surprised to see Sony substantially raised their prices of rebadged Minolta version and my prediction was correct, looking at the price tags carried by Nikon's new lenses. However there is also a substantial room for street price to drop in time.

It is nice to see Sony putting SSM on a Zeiss lens. Too bad they didn't do it for the other ones.

These prices are amazing. The camera body is the hook, the lens is where they make the serious money.

What is incredible about it?

F2.8 is not that fast.
70mm on full-frame is not that long. Too short for portraits.
24mm on aps-c in not that wide.

And for all the above compromises it costs a lot of money and is no doubt heavy.

I will now don my flame proof coat....
