A $4000, 1kg über-corrected MF lens is nice and fine but as Zeiss elaborates on its own website, accurate focus for these fast lenses are seriously hampered by the utterly inadequate focusing screens available, as well as the absence after-market options because new pro bodies won't allow the swap any longer. The D800 and 5DIII are deliberately disabled in this way, compared with the D700 and 5DII.
Unless these new behemoths (this is the first of several in the series) are intended for studio + live view or video use only, I can understand the desire to own one but am less juiced by its real-life utility.
