Price in Germany according to Geizhals Deutschland:
€6999 (about $9000)
This price smells like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Apparently, they don't expect to sell many of these, hence the big price tag.
However, with this price tag, they can be pretty sure to not sell a lot.

Yes and no... It would just seem things in Europe are just expensive (at least in regards to the brand new stuff)... look at the K-5IIs there, they have them listed at 1,199 euro or ~$1550USD...

Unless Google messed up the conversion, the K-5IIs is ~1067 euro in Romania or about 1381 USD (including the 24% VAT). The 560mm f/5.6 is ~6177 euro, or ~7997 USD.

I've listed some of my photos for sale for $100,000.

Still waiting for the first sale.

P.S.: Do you want to swap against one of my $200,000 photos? You can paypal the difference, OK?

The primes on that list are faster and may be better optically. This new lens is rivaling the price of the FA* 600/4
