Mirrorless friendly or not the value os this lens is not 2000 euro IMHO.

Around 800/1000 euro it is acceptable as the only benefit compared to Sigma 135 is the reduction of weight.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion. But then you really need to check the price of Zeiss lenses from other ranges: ZM, Milvus, Batis, Loxia. We are talking about a lens that is practically optically perfect, from Zeiss, that features (true) APO, T* coating, OSS.

How one expects such a lens to be cheaper than the other Batis lenses is difficult to understand.

I agree, lenses of this quality are not inexpensive and the reduction in weight is huge compared to the Sigma 39.8oz vs 21.6 that is a LOT! That would be worth it just for the weight difference to me and frankly would rule the Sigma out entirely not to mention adapted lenses do not perform like native lenses. As much as I want the Sony if it weighs that much its going to be a close call for me I already have enough heavy glass with the 70-200 & 100-400GM (shortly) I do not need any more.

Please do not put words in my mouth. Nothing can be further from the truth.
