I think this lens may be a little too expensive for most folks. It will almost certainly be of a higher IQ than the zoom since most primes are, but THAT much better? The 18mm-30-35mm focal length is where I feel the zoom is at its best so it's harder to justify using the 18 or 23mm primes. The zoom isn't quite as solid at 55mm and it is a bit slower at that focal length as well so a 56mm 1.2 is a bit easier to justify. I'm more of a portrait photographer myself so perhaps it's easier for me to justify the portrait lens over the wider lens, but either way I think it's just a touch too high.

For that price it really does need to rival the Leica 35mm summilux asph in quality.
