I'm interested in this, I fear it'll be priced excessively though, £1500 or something crazy, in which case I probably won't get it.

Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR is $1250 US, so my guess is about that price. Being for mirrorless the lens could be cheaper, but my guess is Sony will use that for increased profit instead


Indeed - given my old A-Mount  35 / 1.8 was about £150 and the FE 55 1.8 is, what £800 or so? I'm not hopeful...

(although I understand the Zeiss FE is better quality than the cheapy 35mm!)
