    I received this from Zeiss today......
    I will be selling the lens for $877

    A new compact telephoto lens, Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM, fits
    perfectly to the popular ZM line of lenses. Thanks to its small
    size, this lens is ideal for portrait and landscape photography.
    Together with the compact C Biogon 4,5/21 ZM or C Biogon
    T* 2,8/35 ZM lenses, the Tele-Tessar is the perfect equip-
    ment to travel with, providing fascinating picture taking possi-

    Despite its compact design, the image quality of the Tele-
    Tessar T* 4/85 ZM is by no means inferior to that of other
    lenses in the ZM line. The lens is almost distortion-free and
    features excellent field curvature correction. Its shortest pos-
    sible distance setting of only 0.9 m / 35.4” ensures maxi-
    mum diversity of use. Its all-metal mount and sturdy design
    make it a multi-purpose lens for a wide variety of applica-
    tions, even in tougher conditions.

    Delivery of the Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM in silver or black fin-
    ish is scheduled to begin by the end of the year. A dedicated
    lens shade will be available as an optional accessory.
