XF14 is much more complicated than the other XF lenses

Yes, the 14mm being an UWA is a much more complicated lens when compared to the other X lenses.

Very high quality optics corrected as much as they could maintaining the size and reasonable price, for the distortion, CA and sharp from corner to corner.

XF14mm includes 2 aspherical and 3 low dispersion glass elements (where usually the LD elements drive the price to the roof).

For example the zoom and XF18 have high barrel distortion that is corrected in camera's software.

I fully expect Zeiss to sell at a higher price.

Regards
