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?

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