Why do you have so much lens duplication?

Not duplication, unless you consider the Contax G 35/2 and the Zeiss ZM 35/2 close cousins.

They are all different lenses. They come from four different (use) periods -

  • First: legacy SLR (OM and MD) which I already had in my possession
  • Then: RF for compactness, and speed (before the LA-EA2, Nex-7 and fast E mount lenses existed) [They are not best for Nex-7].
  • Next: A-mount for AF (since they were so cheap) after the LA-EA2 introducton
  • and Now: E mount lenses (both prime and zooms) when they finally came out
