Re: why are Sony FE lens so expensive ?

Canon has a lot of ancient lenses still for sale.... 17-40, 28 1.8, 50 1.4, 50 1.2, 100/2, 100/2.8 macro, 75-300 non USM, 85 1.8, 20 2.8.... most of these lenses came out in the 90s or even the 80s. Granted some of them are still very good.... the USM tele primes come to mind... but it's hardly an apples to apples comparison. You compare current Canon glass to Sony glass and the prices are close
