Re: How much is expensive lens for you??

I would say that a lens is too expensive when there are other comparable lenses with similar performance that sell for less. This is within a system. If we compare M43 to FF, there is no question that there are very competitively priced FF primes.

My most expensive lens is the 20/1.7, which I still don't consider the slightest bit overpriced. It is sharp, fast and compact, the three properties I look for. On the other hand, the Canon 40mm pancake is also sharp, fast (mounted on an FF body, compared to the 20/1.7) and compact and less expensive. On the third hand, you then need to find a compact FF Canon body; good luck with that.
