Why the difference in price?
Oct 2, 2012

I have been looking for a legacy prime lens around 85-105mm and have noticed that the pricing varies mostly on the aperture. I'm wondering why is there such a huge difference in price between an 1.8 and a 1.2 or 1.4?

Is it that much more difficult to make those than others?
