According to the Norwegian press release, the recommended price for this lens is $3 438 in Norway (19 990 NOK). That’s a $1 139 difference for the same lens – which is out of my reach, so I’ll be looking at the old version or the Tamron. I can’t wait for the reviews of this thing. It’s going to be an interesting year for eye shopping.
Haha, I am also from Norway, and was planning on the 5D mark III/X and the 24-70 II as a "finished-my-university-degree-present" to myself this summer. Seems like that was more of an economic long-shot than I had imagined
Euro equivalence should be around 17500 NOK if I am not mistaken. With that price, you might be able to go to Germany and come back with the Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II
Joke aside, gear prices are really
