Essentially the same price as the 45/1.8 (euros, not too sure about dollars) - a bit expensive seen in this light? After all, most 50/1.8 lenses are cheaper than 85/1.8 lenses.

You could also think of it like this: the 45 is really close to being a 50, so it should be the cheapest.

Or: 24mm lenses tend to be a lot more expensive than 50mm lenses, so the the 45 should probably be cheaper.

A lot is decided by the actual millimetres, so equivalent millimetres are likely to lead to the wrong conclusions. But, if we follow your logic, I think a more obvious conclusion would be that the 45/1.8 is an absolute bargain.
