    I ordered two from B&H. They're selling the camera/lens combo for $6,000.

    I hear you don't need two ... one will take images in two directions at once at different focal lengths.

    I ordered three! At 5 am! One for each lens. (Wait -- sounds like they do that too?? I'll save a few bucks and just get one!)

    That Eye Controlled Focus with Animal Eye Tracking and the Bird Recognition algorithms sound really cool! Maybe then I wouldn't end up with so many shots of blurry birds sitting on perfectly focused branches.

    Hopefully they'll come out with a left hand version for all the left handers in the world.
