I know it's an awesome lens, but can I do as well with a comparable- close second for the cost? Using it with a Pany G5. Thanks to all in advance. Have a great day- or night depending where you're at

I think it mainly comes down to whether you need the fast-ish f2 aperature. If not, plenty of lenses can substitute and give similar IQ stopped down, like the 9-18, and save some money. If you need fast, your choices are limited.
