Re: New 135/2 VR

For portraits away from home/studio. The 200/2 is way too big and heavy to carry around and I'm waiting for an optically excellent 135/2G VR. They better not wait too long there is a rumor of a new "Art" Sigma 135/1.8 that's optically stabilized and I would buy in a second if it's close to what the Art Sigma 35/1.4 is optically.

The Zeiss 135/2 appears to be a dream optically but I have a hard time nailing perfect focus on my Zeiss 100/2 so MF does not work for me. Maybe if a good focusing screen was avail on the D800E.

Completely Agree!  I will keep my 135 f/2 DC lens, but want to add a 'mini-200 f/2 VR' to my kit.  I wouldn't complain if it was a 135 f/1.4 or 135 f/1.8 VR either.
