    Any news on pricing of these lenses?

      Sorry Charles,

      “Pricing and availability on all of these lenses has yet to be announced.”

      My guess is the 19mm and 30mm will be the same $199 price as the originals. The 60mm will most likely be more expensive though at ~$250-$300 I would say. Just a guess though ;)

      Jay
