Zeiss 24mm f1.8 is expensive and the size of zoom (18-55mm). Sony 20mm f2.8 is kinda slow-ish. Same for Sigma 19mm and 30mm - both f2.8.

I would love to see 18mm or 20mm f1.8 or f2 made by Sony - thus not too expensive. Or even 24mm f2 or 30mm f2.

Why not even go wild and make at least 1 FAST prime like f1.4 (anything from 16mm to 30mm so it will be more versatile lens, street or journalist lens). Fuji has 23mm f1.4 and it is not sticking out like it's a zoom (Zeiss 24mm).

Or any fast zoom at least? Samsung just made 16-50 f2-2.8 zoom, Fuji has 18-55 f2.8-4 zoom, Oly has 12-40 f2.8 zoom. I'm not asking to make something like Sigma made - 18-35 f1.8 zoom but at least f2.8-4 to start with?

I feel like Sony covered almost everything, but FAST lenses. And don't even try telling me that size is the reason and it will be huge. Take a look at Canon 22mm f2 pancake lens, Fuji 18-55mm f2.8-4 zoom or Samsung 30mm f2 pancake prime? Do you expect me to believe Samsung, Canon and Fuji know better and can do something that Sony can't? :/

Samsung 16-50mm F2.0-2.8
