Unless you buy these used, purchasing lenses of such caliber brand new will likely be the exact same price everywhere you look. With today's market, PL lenses are in high demand, so don't expect to see many sets of Ultra Primes, even used, floating around. This is the type of product you either can afford or not. There's little wiggle room or ambiguous ability to purchase. If you have the $60,000 to roughly buy 5-lenses new... go for it. If you don't, don't expect to really see them listed anywhere for considerably less. It's a pretty fixed price range, especially with few authorized distributors.

For outside the USA look at authorized dealers from Arri's website: http://www.arri.de/contacts/arri_distributors.html
Are you from India? Here are authorized Arri companies in the Asia market: http://www.arri.de/contacts/arri_distributors/asia_camera.html
