Floris,

I was quoting the list price. Of course it is discounted by dealers. To put things in perspective however, I got mine for about the price of a new 3x XL series lens. Now that is a deal!

Haha. I understand that. No offense intended!

Now that I have slapped a Zacutto "cut to size" barrel gear on the 6X that allows us to use our follow-focus system again I find we are using the 6X most of the time.

It is really covers a good deal more of our shot scene needs - of course it is great for close interiors. It's a beautiful lens.

I really want this lens. I will probably order it later this month.
