I hope the upcoming 17mm f/1.8 lens will not take so long before to ship like it happened with the great 75mm lens. At least we Europeans can finally find the lens in Stock (the lens was first displayed in February!). You can find it in Stock at Amazon Germany (Click here), Amazon UK (Click here), Photo Video France (Click here), Fotoexperte (Click here), SRSmicrosystem (Click here), Mike Kelly (Click here). A cheap hood for the lens gets sold by ProPhotoshop Germany (Click here).
Some new image samples have been posted at Zuikoholics.
