Do a Google search to find a company that does custom lens fabrication. Contact them and ask them how much it will cost for them to make a 24mm f/1.8 lens with AF for the Sony E-mount ... be sure to explain that you want the best possible image quality with zero CA, excellent corner sharpness, no distortion, no lens flare and exceptional contrast and color fidelity.

Then tell them that you want them to make the lens for less than $1,000.

When the technicians for that custom lens fabricator are done laughing hysterically at you they might be willing to tell you the estimated cost ... which will make the price of the Zeiss 24mm look AMAZINGLY affordable.

They'll stop laughing if you tell them you will order 50,000 of them, then the price will go down and they will take your order and start laughing all the way to the bank...
