I agree and think it is slightly overpriced but keep in mind the Nikon 35mm doesn't have VR while the Sony does have OSS.

Which I did mention in my post. But, do you really think OSS should account for $200 to $250 more (i.e. more than double) in price?

Nex-7 with kit lenses, Contax G 35, and a number of legacy lenses (mostly Canon FD)

It tends to double the price of lenses it's attached to. This isn't unique to Sony - it's the same for Canon, Nikon and even Sigma (when the inevitably replace their lenses with IS equivalents).

$450 is still a lot for a consumer-level 35mm lens, but on the bright side, it's still more affordable than the $850 35/2 IS that Canon just put out.
