I can’t imagine paying this much for an f2 lens! Must be really good, but hardly worth it for most people.


From the official sample images here, you may never know they were taken with a $4495 lens:

I often wonder if the technology hasn't surpassed the ability of the human eye to detect the differences between the images produced by a $500 lens and a $4,000 one (or the human palate determining between a $60 bottle of Cabernet and a $300 bottle!. Happily, I CAN tell the difference between a can of Coors and a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.)
