Now, this is what I’m talking about. Finally a Zeiss Zoom with Canon EF mount. This should make up a little for the 7D firmware French Update. The new LWZ.2 15.5mm-45mm T2.8 with cine gears is exactly what the HDSLR community has been waiting for. I guess Canon missed the boat on this one. No mention of price that I could find yet. Killer Glass for the DSLR’s. Less barrel distortion than still zooms.

Three different mounts available ( (PL, EF and F mount)
Compact, lightweight zoom ideal for Steadicam, handheld and remote work
Super color matched with all ZEISS cine lenses
Highest optical performance despite compact build

T* XP coating ensures flare resistance

Actually, according to the Zeiss rep the price will be in the “mid 20K’s”, but think thats almost 1/2 the price of the Optimo 15-40.

looks really nice. Depending on its price, that might replace my Tamron 17-50

I think you’d be the first person to ever make the leap from a tamron to a 20 grand Zeiss. Sadly though I think the difference between the Zeiss and Tamron would still not be too noticeable. Put that 20grand into a cool personal project and you’ll get a lot more for your money. Make a great rental though.
