Why m4/3 lenses are SO expensive ?
Mar 11, 2013

Wanted to add to my very nice 14mm 2.5 Panny something faster and longer like Panny 25mm 1.4 and checked out prices at amazon.co.uk and wow

Panasonic 25mm F1.4 £427.36

when , actually brighter Canon (as needs to illuminate bigger sensor with same amount of light) with bigger diameter glass inside costs so much less

Canon EF 50mm - f/1.4 USM £274.95

even Canon L beast With 3,5 times more optics and metals (200g against 705g) cost only just a fraction more

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM £475.00

is it R&D, for what we are paying so much ? or what ?
