But even this is not always the case. The Sony 35mm f/1.8 E-mount lens is about 6mm shorter than the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G, but sells for more than twice the price, despite the fact that the Nikkor provides more than 1 stop advantage in light gathering and DOF control.

I have a Sony 35mm f/1.8 purchased for $165. So, you would rather discuss pricing now? Or, should I try to learn from you that pricing of a lens is determined by its length etc?

Plus how much for the adapter?

$90 (but not dedicated exclusively to one lens). Could have picked a cheaper one but it is nice to have the freedom to use tripod (adapter works more like a tripod collar) and EXIF. The 35/1.8 is a lens I got primarily for my A55 though, but I happened to like using it more on NEX.
