It's not just that the Zeiss 24mm is the size of a coke tin - it's also ridiculously expensive.

1.- today standards push manufacturers to go "brighter" on primes, and bright (f1.8 in the case of the Zeiss 24f1.8) means more expensive

2.- check on the introducing prices for the, lets say, Minolta Maxxum 35mm f2.0 and convert it to today's dollars. Now: do you still think the Zeiss is "ridiculously expensive"?

3: like you, I'll be fine with a SEL 24mm f2.8, but... go to #1
