Would anyone be ready to pay premium for premium?


I Love my omd, but ended up with a Canon 6D as additional system for the dof/IQ performance. Hence my question.

Would anyone more than me be ready to pay around 1000 usd or more for truly premium 1.2, and similar, lenses for the omd? I am picturing performance similar to the Canon L series. Even though they would be bigger and heavier than todays lenses they would still be much smaller than the FF lens lines. Especially the small sensor systems really need the wide aperture premium glass imo.

To me, the Canon 85/1.2 has almost too narrow dof sometimes. But on mft it would be perfect and almost close the gap between FF and mft.

Any opinions?
