For $450, Sony's 35/1.8 normal lens had better be a truly stellar performer...

Re: 100% Wrong. Comparison is valid. Be schooled.

So, what in the hell is Sony thinking peddling a $450, not particularly fast "normal lens" for its line of system cameras?

Obviously, you are stuck with an idea that a lens with certain focal length and aperture can't cost more than another with same specs. Really? Get a clue.

I use Sony 35mm f/1.8 SAM on my NEX-3. That is a lens I bought new for... $165. But, unlike you, I can tell why another lens, with the same specs might cost, or costs, more. You can feel it. You can tell it. If you can figure out that there is more to a lens than just the specs.
