New Zeiss Otus 28 mm f/1.4

I rarely get excited about new gear anymore, but this lens looks very promising for architecture, especially interiors. I've found 28-35mm to be a sweet spot for interior vignettes, partial room shots, etc, so this beast should fit the bill perfectly if it performs as well as they promise. Thoughts?

Nice, just noticed that autocorrect changed the title to "otis" not otus..

No idea what its distortion characteristics are but I'd imagine they'd be very good. It's probably sharper in the corners than my 16-35 too but I can't justify it. Paying big dollars for 1.4 aperture is worth it if you use it, but I'd rarely find the use for a 28mm 1.4 shot in my architectural photography. I won't be trading in the 24mm Tilt-shift for it, put it that way.
