Why not just re-issue the Minolta 28/2, 35/2 and 100/2? All are supposed to be superb on FF

It's my understanding that KM sold off some of it's assets before Sony could buy them, and some of those assets were some of the lens production facilities for some of those fast primes. Sony may have the blueprints, but they would have to re-tool anyway, so why not just start from scratch with a digital design?

And, yeah, I want some fast primes too. But I want the medium telephotos that you can't shoot indoor sports without. I wouldn't mind a 35/2, but what I really want is an 85/1.8 or 100/2.0 like Canon has.

  • The lens is the thing.

  • 'Full Frame' is the new 'Medium Format'.
