The $2.5k rumor has been floating for quite a while now. And it's crazy.

This is the kind of lens you'd want to serve as an advertisement for your system. Look what MFT can do.

You'd want to sell loads of them at cost or even below cost to attract new users into the system. Make it a kit lens for higher end models even.

Instead they opted to milk the 1% of the existing user base that can justify its price. Classy.

I don't agree.

1. No matter what system I've used (Canon, Sony, Panasonic), the wide angle lenses are ALWAYS the most expensive. (as long as they aren't variable aperture)

2. Have you seen prices of other lenses? Peek at the 200 2.8 and the 40-150mm 2.8 from Olympus?

If the lens was $5000, I'd be right there with you.

For $2500...I could see it. $1500, I might even pick it up myself
