Retarded price.

I couldn't agree more. This really has me scratching my head and has taken all the wind out of my sails. I own Minolta's MD and Canon's FDn 135mm f/2.8, that I have used over the last 5 years on my NEX-7 and A7RII, and I love them both. I have been banging the native (AF) 135mm drum for the last 2-3 years, and they finally answered with this ridiculous price point. I would have expected this price for a f/2.0 or f/1.8 GM lens, NOT a f/2.8 Batis.

Why not just buy another lens if this weather-sealed apo-tele is too expensive for you? Or too slow at f:2.8?

I am surprised by people who expect Zeiss lenses to be cheap!

there is a difference in between being expensive and overpriced. This is the latter.

How can you tell, do you have information that we don't have?
