I thought I'd start a separate thread about these two (apparent) gems. Like many, I have both on order and anxiously await the magical ship notice from B&H.
In the meantime, post here if you've recently gotten your copy(s), along with pertinent details as your source and the date you ordered the lens.
In particular - if you know of a source (usually local stores) that have one of these available, PLEASE let us know! Yesterday I saw a link in dpreview for Popflash (LA store) that had the 85 in stock. I clicked, and sure enough they had one left. However, since I am for California, I did not want to pay the 8-9% sales tax.
And of course, if you are one of the chosen few with either of these lenses, PLEASE let us know your experiences with the lens. Images will be appreciated!
