I just pulled the trigger on the $4k Otus 55 1.4 for Canon.
However, I still believe that the $2K ish price for the 24/70 2.8 is too high
Weird or Wonderful? Be honest, I can take it.

Hopefully it doesn't disappoint you - the $4000 lens that it.

I had the sincere fortune to try it out briefly for a couple of days, and I already miss the magic! Not that I'm going to buy it, but it won't disappoint you. No way!

So wonderful gets my vote too.

Hopefully the Otus is noticeably better than the Sigmotus otherwise it will be weird. Awesome bit of kit, enjoy.

Tom, congratulations, that may well be the best ever normal lens for Canon, performance-wise as well as build-wise.
I wish they would come up with an AF version.
Also, smooth rubber MF ring surface might start to show scuffing much more than the usual ribbed type ring, however, I guess they probably wanted to have a completely smooth and "fluid" barrel, and form might have taken precedence over function there.

Weird. Maybe because I'm not a nature photographer and can't see myself using full manual. But I do appreciate great photos from other photographers

Not sure about wonderful or weird but I find it inconsistent. The Otus is the best ~50 out there for pure IQ. Is there any 24-70 out there that bests the Canon mkII on pure IQ? Not sure why you would think one is ok and the other is overpriced.

I got my 24-70 mkII for a little over $1700. I would consider that a fair upgrade cost given the FF IQ you are getting.

Tom......you only live once and if that makes you happy ...go for it and enjoy it....Some people spend that much on a cruise and have nothing but memories....they can't resell that cruise, but your lens will always be worth at least 75% (probably more) of what you paid ...I'm happy and envious.

That's cool. Let's go with 'wonderful' on this one. Was it having it in your hand that swayed you or were the excellent reviews justification enough to pull the trigger? Congrats either way!

it's all relative...did you forego making you mortgage payment for it, or are you just filthy rich

Wonderful that you are getting the lens you wanted. Happy for anyone to acquire something they want and I would truly love to try one of those. Weird that you would pay that price for a manual focus and think the 24 70 II in all its own greatness for a zoom is overpriced. *shaking my head but smiling* . But I am guessing that you are thinking exactly the same thoughts, thus the thread. .

I personally wouldn't buy a lens without AF, but I do love the look of the images it produces. If it works for you, it's all good

Can't it simply be wonderfully weird? Must admit that I'm looking forward to seeing your results.
