Those who didn't yet watched Angry Ken's video on youtube about Tokina version, he is very impressed by its sharpness and bokeh but upset because of price and weight

If you sign up for the Amazon Prime charge card, you get an extra $70 off. Everyone needs another charge card, right?

I had been hoping for something like this, and my gut is we won't see lower for awhile. B+H was amazingly fast, and the lens landed in my hands yesterday. Nasty bleak rainy day, so didn't do much, but of the few snaps I took, all I can say is wow. Really wow.

Wait until you can really test it! Then the wows really fly
I bought mine at the 1095 price but B&H says they will refund the difference. Always good to deal with them!

To all who purchased this amazing lens during the sale period, I just wanted you to know you are about to be blown away. I just received mine today and am already blown away by it's sharpness, bokeh, autofocus speed and accuracy, and overall image quality! This lens is a game changer. Sure it is heavy, but if that is the only trade off, I am ecstatic!!! Congrats to all who took advantage of this all time low price.

B&H says this will expire at the end of today, FYI, though this could change.

Did you bite? No regrets here. Absolute joy to use in every way. Thoughts of weight go away when using it. Feels "right" on the K-1. As they used to say in radio land, "hold the phones, we have a winner!"

I actually bit earlier in the month at B&H for $1097. I emailed them last Friday and the refunded the $100. The lens is unbelievable. Well worth the weight and price.
