Seems like the guy had a real opportunity to experience real traditional Marrakesh life. In other words, he stumbled from one tourist trap into another. :)
Will be interesting to see how this lens fares on the market. The Canon 135/2 image quality is so good that it is hard to imagine to get any better in terms of practical application. So what is left for the Zeiss is build quality and handling and I am sure for some who don't need AF this is worth the money.
