It would want to be good for that money! Can't wait for the reviews to hit. Usually I'd rush out and be first to buy but for that asking price - I'm a bit wary.

I wonder if it really is worth it?  I'd need to sell a number of my current collection to pay for it:

24-105L, 24L TS-E II, or one of the following 35L, 50L or 85L. 

I'd also consider giving up my 16-35mmL II, since I don't use the wide side that much.  But as soon as I sell, I bet the need will arise. 
Cams: Canon 5D3, EOS M
Zooms: 16-35mm f/4L IS, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II; Primes: 22mm f/2, 40mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.2L, 100mm f/2.8L IS, 135mm f/2L, 300mm f/2.8L IS II, 600mm f/4L IS II
Support: Gitzo GT4542LS/G2258, RRS BH-55, Wimberley WH-200

For when Adorama runs out, or people that prefer NewEgg.

I just placed my order and will be cancelling my order from B&H in the morning.

Newegg is where I bought mine a couple of weeks ago. They had four in stock.

Few people think of them for high end photo gear. Lucky I did at the time!

I was thinking the same thing and then spent the whole weekend getting great shots with it that couldnt be done with anything else. It can make some truly unique images!!
