Re: why not f/1.2 by Sony?

The f-stop, however, is not an accurate representative of exposure (light transmission), and more so at larger apertures. Unfortunately, manufacturers get away with simply quoting f-stops. I wish t-stop would be included, as they do for cine lenses.

Agreed. It is like the 60's when a car advertised at 250HP could only produce that air cleaner and exhaust removed, etc.

Now HP is SAE net and meas something. A similar regulation for lenses would be nice.
