I guess you want a 50mm lens for around $500 but want the sharpness of a lens of similar FL but costs around $2500 or more. There is a reason why the Otus and the Leicas cost so much. I am sure Nikon and Sigma can design and build one, but the market will be so small that it may not be economically feasible for them to do it.

I would like something reasonably better at no premium price (could be 500$). With growing pixel counts there will be a further upgrading of lenses or it will be entirely meaningless.
