they said June. pricing is still a lil bit sketchy. although initial reports said the price is $1300 (ouch), this is as far as the Canadian price is concerned. if the reports are accurate, my purchase might have to wait til the end of the year.
Ouch, indeed. At this price, It'll definitely be a wait and see game then. At the optimistic prices we were all wishing for, it'd get bought sight unseen. Now I'll be looking for stellar reviews to justify it before serious consideration. Heck, as far as I'm concerned, they'll have their hands full, warding off the Rokinon/Samyang/Vivitar/Bower 85's performance, let alone it now being in the FA*85's stratosphere.

Looks like i'll be holding on to this Rokinon for a little while longer..
