If that is the real price, I am out, which is too bad for me. I am sure it will be drool worthy, and maybe I rent it a few times. But there is not a lens on earth I can pay that much for anytime soon.

That’s insane.  The Nikon and canon 85 1.4 and the 85 1.2 are less than $1500.  Used is even less expensive.

The brand new generation lenses for mirrorless cost that much so might as well jump to ML.  Ricoh must be on a different planet and out of their mind if they think people are going to pay that.
