Just curious, what's your definition of a consumer grade price? Almost $1000 doesn't really fit my definition.

For what this lens is, a retail price of $900 seems quite reasonable especially considering the next step up would only get you out to 100mm (with the 12-100Pro). It's 45% more expensive. If you don't think so, then there are cheaper options available that are almost always on sale... this one will be too eventually.

"Back in the day" the four-thirds HG lenses were weatherproof and zooms were variable aperture, all were priced under US $1000. SHG lenses were all over $1000, many by a large amount, and zooms were constant aperture.

Guess what I'm saying is there is precedent.

Cheers,

Rick
