Re: What's the advantage of this duplication?

I get the personal preference thing. However, having an AF lens, at anytime, I can switch off AF & do MF. There are already so many lenses focus by wire, so users can simply adapt like how it always has been. For me, its no biggie. But having a MF lens, there's no option for AF.

So it’s not the lens for you. But plenty much prefer real MF or loathe focus by wire. Some people also never shoot something that requires AF. Your point it valid for you, and Batis is the right choice, but that doesn’t negate the validity of Loxia as a choice for others.
