That's good news. Any idea about availability in Europe?

Has anyone else used Century Optics first hand - are they worth the premium price?

I notice their FX7 0.65 lists for $615 but is $495 at B&H.

The only review of the 0.65 for FX7 says "On wide angle, is very soft in all but center and when zoomed in, chromaticaberration makes it unusable. They made such a great lens for the PD150. Am still looking for a w/a for camera."

Would hate to spend this $$$ to find out it's got issues. Or was this just a faulty lens and unreliable review?
