Wasn't m43 lens supposed to be $ cheaper?
Dec 30, 2013

Why fast or primes are so expensive? I mean...they often cost the same as full frame lens!
i though as the whole system is smaller, lens should be a bit cheaper.
Like the Panasonic 12-35 2.8 costs the same as the Canon full frame equivalent.
Ans i also wish third party brands would pay more atention to m43.
I had a Tamron 17-50 2.8 for Nikon. it was sharp as hell, and half the price of the nikon equivalent!
