Good deal on a Loxia kit from B and H as well. All four with accompanying 52mm UV filters and handy carrying case for $4376, previously $5414. At least I think thatís a good deal right?

I did a currency conversion because I was interested and these prices are rediculius (in a bad way). $1800 USD for the Loxia 21mm.

There was a sale on all Zeiss glass in Sweden during the weekend, everything at 25% off, even Otus. I almost pulled the trigger on the Batis 135 but it is still too much money for my low usage. I still have the Zony 135/1.8, so Iím good anyway. I bought a Loxia 50 to complement my 21. Another 50... just what I needed...

Edit: Deal is still ongoing if anyone from the nordic countries is interested:

Haha, thatís life in Sweden. Everyting is MUCH more expensive than in the US, especially photo gear. Itís a tiny market in comparison, and the state adds 25% VAT on all goods sold. It doesnít help to import from the US either, customs will add the standard 25% VAT on the delivery + their own fees and extra penalties for buying from abroad.

So you can imagine, when we can deduct 25% on these prices, and the Loxia 21 sells for $1350, itís a damn good deal over here, and it only happens once in a blue moon.

The A7RIII launch price in Sweden is over $4300, more than a grand more than in the US. Oh, and we also pay the highest taxes in the world. Yeah, it sucks.

Ordered the Batis 135 from Adorama on Thursday and it was just delivered! I noticed the packaging is much better secured now that they were several months ago. They listened to their customers.



You have NO idea how happy this has made me!! Thank you so much for sharing....

Call them seriously. You just placed a nice big order maybe they can help on the Loxia 85. Worst they can say is no. They are really nice folks.

Btw I get nothing from recommending them. Just a good shop


So Adorama got back to me and they got the okay from zeiss to include the loxia 85! ,so I ended up getting the 21,35, and 85 for 25 percent off. Thanks gm photography.

Also, the discounts and bundles are still ongoing.

If Adorama truly has fixed their shipping packaging, I'd generally rather order from them than B&H. They ship quicker and aren't closed unexpectedly/often for orthodox holidays I've never heard of. But, until I'm absolutely sure Adorama has changed their evil ways I'll continue to avoid them for lenses or anything else fragile. As of two months ago they were still screwing up.

BH packaging wasn't stellar few months ago when they shipped my $2500 Sony 100-400, only one sheet of bubble wrap in a big box, plenty of room for the lens box to bounce around, Adorama did similar thing, there is a thread where people complained about it. But the Batis 135 I got from Adorama last week was very well packed.

I completely understand. The problem is - the Adorama packaging department has a strict protocol for packaging, but there are dozens of packers.

It only takes ONE (or one packaging machine out too late the night before ........ )to mess up one order
