Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZE Lens
eBay (via Zeiss Authorized Dealer Cameraland – 99.8% Positive Feedback) has a used Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZE Lens for Canon available for $3,599.99 with free shipping. Compare at $4,490.00.
 
Camaraland has only (2) units available for auction. They were store demos and therefore cannot be sold as new/unopened. For what it's worth, Bryan loved the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 when he had it for review. This is likely the lowest price you'll ever see for this lens in good condition.

Tokina Announces Cinema AT-X 50-135mm T3.0 Lens with PL Mount
From Tokina:
 
February 11, 2015 – Kenko Tokina USA, Inc. is pleased to announce the Tokina Cinema AT-X 50-135mm T3.0 lens. Tokina engineers created a lens of this focal length that is Parfocal, has dramatically reduced breathing and image shift, and has a de-clicked, 9-bladed, curved iris for beautiful bokeh and precise exposure control. With its 1M close-focus capability, the lens allows you the freedom to capture tight close-ups while maintaining a comfortable distance from your subject.
 
The Tokina Cinema 50-135mm T3.0 optic is 4K ready and beyond and delivers a highly versatile zoom range in a compact design. The lens has an industry standard 114mm outer front barrel for matt boxes and a 112mm filter threat for mounting filters or other accessories.
 
Features:
 
  • Parfocal lens design allows you to maintain precise focus while using the zoom control.
  • Constant T3.0 throughout the 50mm to 135mm zoom range
  • Reduced breathing so you can focus on the scene and not the lens
  • Smooth, de-clicked, 9-bladed, curved iris for beautiful out-of-focus areas.
  • Virtually no image shift when using the zoom control during filming
  • Aspherical elements and Super-Low Dispersion glass reduce distortion and increase optical performance
  • 4K Image ready
  • Durable, all-metal cine-style housing with geared manual zoom, focus, and aperture rings for use in follow-focus systems.
  • Common 114mm front diameter for use with a wide variety of matte boxes and accessories.
  • Zoom, focus, and iris markings are on both sides of the lens for easy viewing and more mounting/follow-focus options.
  • LDS (Lens Data System) support is possible

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
B&H has the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens available for preorder. The price is quite reasonable, too – it's less than both the 50mm and 35mm Art lenses!
 
And while we're on the subject of price, try comparing the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art to the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM. I'm still a little stunned.
 
My preorder has been submitted. [Sean]

Canon Digital Learning Center
I can honestly say that the above title is one that I never envisioned using before today – but it is certainly indicative of the times. :-) [Sean]
 
From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
"There are profile pictures that are taken with a camera phone in front of a mirror, perhaps on a good hair day or before a night out with friends. Then, there are pictures that are thoughtfully composed, well lit and offer a glimpse into the subject’s personality or interests.
 
For almost every social media account comes an accompanying profile picture. If you’re involved with online dating, those pictures are the first impressions that can determine potential interactions. There are millions of users in the online dating community and to whittle out the competition, a thought-out profile picture can only help."
To find out more, check out the entire article on the Canon Digital Learning Center. Keep in mind that much of this information would also apply to creating flattering headshots for other uses as well.
