Finally, Zeiss announced that the Touit 2.8/50M will be available at march for a retail price of €755 (exlc. VAT -- about €900 incl. VAT) or USD 999. [video=youtube_share;CX3UR9TPgLw]http://youtu.be/CX3UR9TPgLw[/video] More infos on their blog. I can't wait to get my hands on this lens. As you can see on the full sized samples on their Flickr, it renders beautifully. It shows a moderate amount of chromatic aberrations, pretty much no distortion of field curvature and the floating elements design seems to work best at medium distances and worst at infinity (although it's still quite good there). It seems as good as expected - which says a lot for a lens in a line-up with such a high reputation. Now I just hope to be able to get the money together until march, but I'm definitely going to buy it as soon as I can. What's your opinion about this lens? Will you consider to buy it?
