Photography is not a crime, but perhaps my abuse of artistic license is?

If you think that's gold, there's a bridge I can sell you.
Brass! Even colour blind me can tell the difference.

I meant the colour, not the material of manufacture. that sure as heck looks like a goldy colour to me.

It includes seven aperture plates (since it’s using the Waterhouse system)
and four additional experimental aperture plates. You will also get a leather
case and some other goodies for $599 for a brass version and for $100 more
for the black version. You can get them with either a Canon EF or a Nikon F mount.
They’re available for pre-order now with an estimated delivery date of May 2014.

But, I guess you already know this.

It is really a "retro" lens, but neither a retro and golden fan. :|

It's extraordinary and might just be practical for portraiture. Would be nice to see some image samples, though.
