Doesnt interest me since I have to pay $3k for this chunk of glass... would rather they come up with something more accessible, in the range of $1k to $1.5k :)

If the review of it is out and it's not as sharp as the MK I... The prices for the Mark I will maintain.

i wonder how low the price for a used 85L(1st gen) will dropped to?

i don't think it'll drop that much, considering the super-high retail price of the new mark ii. Fredmiranda's side has some interesting analysis on this

Base on USD, the New mkII 85mm f1.2L of USD$2.1k will be selling in Singapore for sure around Sin$4k ++ :bigeyes:

The Current 70-200mm f2.8L IS in US is USD$1.7k, as in Sin Current price is Sin$3.2k

The old 85mm f1.2 is USD$1.5k, Singapore selling Sin$3k :)

Who's Buying ?:think:

If we are all trying to get good images with super bokeh, I hope that Canon can produce a DC lens like Nikon's AF-DC Nikkor 105 f/2D.
