    The B and H site lists the 17th as the expected availability. Should start shipping after that.

    They still show the 17th for the 25mm; just the 85mm shows the 23rd.

    Congratulations. Hope you'll share some of your tests. As far as I can see, nobody has really checked out the distortion issue yet, or done any testing of the corners stopped down.

    Who is shipping? B&H is not being clear on availability.

    My dealer got them for me. Apparently the dealers have not yet received the 'regular' supply but they have received 'demo' models which are brand new, unopened, unused but the warranty card and manual are not provided for 5 months to the dealer. I have a special relationship with my dealer and was the first on his list. So he offered me the demo units and the manuals will be sent to me a few months later. Since the items are in truth brand new, I had no problems accepting them. I've been buying from him for 8 yrs now and get all my gear from him, so we have a very good relationship.

    Totally understand. The intimate dealer relationships are the best!

    What's confusing is that B&H is saying (via customer service) that they don't know when the lenses are going to arrive? Sonyalpharumors is reporting that the lenses are to start shipping tomorrow. Congrats to any who get these and we await your feedback!

    For preferred customers, "YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" is shipping.

    I haven't been adding to my Sony A7xx lens collection lately, but these Zeiss Batis lenses are very temptiing.

    I just looked at the B&H site, and now it says the Batis 85 is expected to be available in "mid-August." Maybe the first group was just a few.....?

    I think that's based on if you preordered today. I think the initial orders/shipment may come prior to that. I could be wrong but it seems odd that the small pro camera shops would get all the Batis order prior to B&H and Amazon. They may have to fulfill preorders first and then show available stock afterwards outside the allocation for the storefront.

    My 25mm arrived today, from Focus Camera. First impression is very favorable. (although I have to admit it is quite a bit bigger than I anticipated.)

    Just received an email from B&H...Batis will not arrive until "late" August now. Anyone getting different information?
