Re: Lens weight correlates to manufacturing cost

Well, if comperable lenses are cheaper, then I guess people can use

Lens weight is a good first indicator of what a lens should cost,
since big optical elements quickly goes up in price. The Oly 7-14 and
the Nikon 14-24 both weigh a lot more than the Lumix. The Lumix must
be the by far most expensive 300g DSLR lens not literally handmade in
Germany.

Of course, as you hint, since there is no competition in this mount,
they can take whatever they want, no matter what the lens costs to
manufacture.

No, my point is, if there's a better lens out there, you can use it on THIS CAMERA.

Just get an adapter.
