Re: But look at the lens prices of other systems too!

I don't agree entirely with your post.

Firstly, fluorite glass, magical coatings, stainless steel mount, satin made cases, blue badges, ultrasonic motors etc, they are all secondary features.

The main thing I value is IQ. That is my rationale when I clic buy. My criteria is summed up by this value=IQ/price.

If you cannot SEE VERY CLEARLY the difference between a 99 USD and a 798 USD lens, the second is not worth.

If you search here in DPreview, people have already compared the Sigma and the FE, and the results are almost identical.

Secondly, your lens price comparison is flawed because the lenses you mentioned are completely different in purpose and IQ.
