Available for purchase from July 2015. Since we're almost there, I thought it was time to start a thread about it.

Had my pre-order in for a while now.. guess we'll see when it pops out. Looking forward to it, and perhaps selling that back-breaking 85L.

New Batis full size image samples!

Christian Dandyk posted some great new image samples shot with the new Batis lenses. You can find them here:
Batis 85mm samples on Flickr (external link)
Batis 25mm samples on Flickr (external link)

At first glance the performance looks outstanding! Still wondering if that OLED screen will be something I will get used too. :)

Awesome! Based on comparing images from the Flickr set I am ready to buy an Otus 85mm! Hehe....oh, if I only had an extra $4,500 on hand. :p

Definitely recommended.. they're little love bugs. All they want to do is be around people.. and then sit in their laps. :)
