This new Zeiss lens has received rave reviews and is one of the few 35 mm lenses that can make use of the resolution of the D800e. Diglloyd considers it a must have for serious users. This lens is in stock at B&H for Canon, but unfortunately not for Nikon, where it is arguably most needed. I have ordered the lens from B&H, and am receiving e-mails that the lens is not currently in stock and they do not know when it will be available. This is reminiscent of my experience in ordering the 800e from them. It took them a long time to fulfill back orders even after the camera was widely available from smaller vendors. I obtained the camera elsewhere and cancelled my order with B&H.
Have any forum members been able to obtain this lens, and if so, from where? Does anyone have advice on the best sources from which to obtain this lens?
