    About a month ahead of expected availability.


    I'll have some samples up soon as my lens was delivered earlier today. From the Lenstip review and SLRGear, I expect performance to be of the highest level.

    Sent from my SCH-I535 using Mu-43 mobile app

    I believe it's in stock in B&H too. My order has been "sent to the warehouse" which I presume means it will ship in a day or so. Yay!

    Wow, $1600! Too rich for my blood. One of the reasons I got into mu 43 was lower costs. Enjoy you guys!

    But it is $600 cheaper than the Canon 85/1.2L … unless you moved from Fuji. And I dare say that the Nocticron is a FAR better lens than the Canon 85L in terms of size, weight, wide-open sharpness, corner-to-corner sharpness, speed of AF, accuracy of AF, etc … PLUS you get image stabilization. Add IS to the Canon lens and you will add to the size and weight AND the lens will cost about $1,200 more than the Nocticron and still won't be as good!

    I moved from Canon to Olympus as I wanted a lighter and less bulky system without giving up too much IQ. And I got that. The lower price and surprisingly better IQ is like having my cake and eating it too!
