Thursday we will know more.

Maybe they just want us to call the DFA* 50 the "nifty fifty", as it then will look small and cheap.

Is it me or did the other 85mm thread get deleted?

In any case, this time I haven't found any leaks in other amazon pages (the D FA 70-210/4 appeared with full info, far more product shots and sample images in two or three domains back then). I guess they will open the floodgates all at once this time.

Something odd has happened to it, certainly

20% VAT above American prices, so around $2100

Package Weight1.81 Kilograms (there must be a 500 page manual in there )

Lens Hood PH-RBG82 so 4mm less than the Zeiss Otus and Sigma Art.

Hoping it will eventually fall to 1800-ish USD pricing. The release price looks a little rich for my blood, although if my wife does a few weddings and is frustrated enough with the FA 77 it may not matter.

You'd be surprised at how heavy good padding can get . The lens hood itself is also gonna be ~70 g at least.

Price will be between Canon 85 and Nikon 105, both f/1.4. So $1800ish is a safe bet. It will be reasonably priced for its specs.
Putting the lens up for sale, before release, they probably mark up the price. Release in two days would be interesting.
