fast 35mm - why so expensive?
Aug 29, 2012

Here are my options:

1. Leica m9 + 35mm 1.4 summilux 7000$ + 5000$ = 12000$ total
2. Canon 5d mk 3 + 35mm 1.4 L 3500$ + 1380$ = 4880$
3. Nikon d800 + 35mm 1.4 3000$ + 1650 = 4650$
4. Nex 7 + 24mm 1.8 = 1200$ + 1000$ = 2200$
5. Fuji x100 23mm 2.0 = 1200$
6. used 5d mk 1 + 35mm 2.0 = 700$ + 300$ = 1000$

xpro1 = no fast 35mm equivalent available
micro4/3rds = no fast 35mm equivalent available
(I don't consider 20mm 1.7 a 35mm equivalent lens)
