Re: Expect any lenses from Tamron or Sigma

When I said price gouge I was more referring to their pricey 35mm 1.8.

I do understand that 35mm's are more expensive than their 50mm counterparts, and it does have OSS.

However , I do not think $150 should sperate the 50mm from the 35mm because they both have OSS and a wide-aperture of 1.8. A $50-$100 difference seems more fair to me.

The SEL5018 is reasonably priced though IMHO. I think they just went for a big price gap because they knew that people wanted the 35mm prime, and would pay that much for it anyway.
