Quite alot smaller than its constant f/3.5 predecessor, this one balances OK on my gripped X-E1.

- I have its brother S/N 28422821 in PK fit.

I have owned it (bought 2nd hand) since the 1980s in the UK.

I must try mine on my newish A7R...

Does a Mamiya RZ67 kit apply as ALT?
I am excited to receive it all the same.

I would say that I'am in the process of OTUS acquisition
Ordered five weeks ago, should have been there 2 weeks after ordering, then next week, then the next ...
At last shop visit, status was that Zeiss Germany couldn't even give a vague delivery date so I have accepted the fact that it will be there when it will be there
I hope for the next versions they will anticipate that it should be successful as well.

My pre-order was placed at the beginning of January. The store only received three copies of the ZE version and all spoken for with no idea when the next shipment will be received.

I just ordered my 55mm from B&H this morning and it should be here on Monday or Tuesday.

Of course it's the Vivitar 55mm f/2.8 Macro in FD mount, but I saved a few thousand. And I think it might focus a little closer than the Otus.

I've been on the lookout for a mid range MF zoom lens. I recently acquired the Leica 35-70mm Vario-Elmar-R f/4 a few weeks ago from a collector as it was basically MINT in box. I haven't been able to run the lens through the ringer yet, but I'm very impressed with the few photos I've taken with it. Still looking for the C/Y 35-70mm f/3.4 and the Zuiko 35-70mm f/3.6 though!

Nice!

I just picked up my FD SSC 55/1.2 Aspherical i posted about earlier. Nice and sharp W/O.

Also just bought the VM-E close focus adapter, very well made.

The wait was pretty long for the Oly 25mm but wouldn't you know it both the 75 and the 25 arrived on the same day this past week!

Does that complete the set?

My 2nd Minolta lens before I have an adapter with which to use the first one!

The 2nd is the classic PG 58/1.2, already converted (by Jim Buchanan perhaps) to Canon EF. It's a local Aussie purchase and has a genuine hood included. I can't wait...will use on my 5 D III and my A7R

Still need the 85/1.2 Aspherical, a beauty just sold on eBay http://www.ebay.ca/itm/201050680231
But didn't have the $ in PP yet, so I'll have to wait for another.

Ah, that one was gorgeous and had a box. If my time in the Canon forum taught me anything, it's that the box is good.

Well, I finally gave in and grabbed a Voigtlander APO-Lanthar 125/2.5 SL. And here I was about to sell my ZF100/2 because it's too big. Which I still plan on doing, even more now. But will I use the Voigt? Hmm.
