Hi,

I would like to know the difference between sony lens for alpha SLT with the sony G lenses. Will there be significant differences in image qualities with these 2 types of lenses?

Cost seems to be a lot high for Sony G lenses. Does these 2 types of lenses really have significant differences?

Also does Canon or Nikon has lenses with different prices?

The Sony G designation like the G from the Minolta era means Sony considers the lens to be of higher quality than the non G lenses. Canon designates their better lenses as L. Sony also sell Zeiss lenses, that are also considered premium.

Generally the G lenses are of better construction and sometimes have larger apertures than the non G.

They are generally rated better optically.
