The Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 normally sells for $4,499 (Amazon), authorized Zeiss dealer and eBay seller Cameraland (99.8% positive ratings) has the Zeiss on sale for $3,599.99 (Canon mount). Not bad! Cameraland says:
We had an in store demo and these were shown and put back in the box. Because of this we won’t sell them as new never opened

Product description after the break
EDIT: I made a big
typo mess here, it’s the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM not the Canon 11-24mm. Apologies; this happens when you are in a hurry.
DPReview posted a set of sample pics shot with Sigma’s 24mm f/1.4 lens.
Yesterday Signa announced the price of the new Sigma 24mm f/1.4 lens ($849). Pre-orders at BHphoto and Adorama. Once again Sigma made an interesting lens at an affordable price. I am pretty sure this lens will perform on the same level as the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, and the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lenses.
Sigma press release after the break
Thanks! I got word that Italian Canon resellers have a prospected schedule and price tag for some of Canon’s latest gear:
- EF 11-24mm f/4L availability end of February 2015, price €3,300
- EOS M3 kit with EF-M 18-55mm IS STM availability in May 2015, price €770
- EOS 5DS and 5DS R availability in May 2015, price €3,800 and €4000, respectively
This schedule and the prices are indicative for the rest of Europe, possibly Germany and UK will start shipping earlier. The EOS M3 is already available for pre-order at Amazon UK for £599 and Amazon DE for €749. You can also pre-order the M3 at at DigitalRev (ships internationally).
