equivalent prices

And what price do we think this lens will be if it materialises

I wouldn't put it past them to try $1500 because this is a "85mm f1.2 equivalent lens" (sic)

More realistically, if they want it to sell any at all, they will price it in the $900 range.  Goes head to head with the Oly 75/1.8, err "150mm f1.8 equivalent lens."  Bargains abound!

The Cosina 42.5 0.95 will probably be $1500 ("85mm f0.95 equivalent lens").

Of course this is academic for me since I still have my dusty old cheap-o 85/1.8 and FF camera.  I wonder what that is supposed to be equivalent to?
