Re: Pricing for new (2013) f1.4 lenses?

$600 - $1,000 is my guess - for all the new lenses regardless of aperture. We know the 14mm will be $900. The 55-200 f/4.8 might be at the higher end - wish that was a f/4 instead as I am used to my f/2.8 Nikon equivalent but most competitors have theirs as f/5.6 or f/6.3 so this will be one of the better mirrorless telezooms around - a must have for me. If they are all as good as we hope then these prices seem fair.

As a side note I asked Zeiss at a recent trade show what they plan on selling their 3 upcoming X-mount lenses for and they told me 'around $1,000'.
