Re: why not f/1.2 by Sony?

If I ever needed a lens faster than the Sony/Zeiss 24/1.8, I'd get a Voigtlander and not wait for Sony to produce want I needed.  A Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 Leica M Mount Lens cost $999 at Amazon!  That's cheaper than the Sony/Zeiss 24/1.8. But, of course, the Voightlander is manual focus.  If you really want a 35 or 85mm at f/1.4 AF from Sony, you'll be waiting a long time.
