cost of prime lenses
Mar 23, 2013

Why are there no inexpensive prime telephoto lenses?

A sigma 150 - 500 (f 5) runs about $1000.

One would think there would be a market for a same speed 500 mm lens without zoom for a little less. But I have not seen a 500 mm prime lens at any speed by any manufacturer for less than $5k. Anyone know why that is?
