    Smaller than the new Sigma 105mm f/1.4, so most likely lighter too (86mm filter vs 105mm filter on Sigma). Will undoubtly be a stunner — including a likely $5k price tag. Still, without AF, is it more than twice as good as the Sigma? My guess is that a lot of photographers will be answering no.

    Too bad it's going to be an Otus - out of the realm of possibility for most. I wonder if they will introduce something similar to their Milvus line-up? They will now have the: 85mm 1.4; the 55mm 1.4; 28mm 1.4; and now a 100mm 1.4... Now that would be a suitcase of lenses to have! If you didn't need to work quickly that is...
