Re: Zeiss violate me with their expensive lenses ...

I never expect it to be cheap, but just not outrageously overpriced especially it's only a f2.8.

High quality glass, complex optical contrsuction, excellent build, smaller series ... maybe there is a reason that such lenses are expensive.

The Loxia 85 mm f:2.4 is $ 1399 at B&H Photo, and gets 5 stars from buyes. Some of us find even this manual focus Zeiss lens worth the money.

I have also had many Leica lenses, and Zeiss are in league with these.
