Re: why are Sony FE lens so expensive ?


ok I could be wrong about the price difference - it might be the particular lens I was interested in are cheaper with Canon - but the high end G lens are comparable

I know the Sony 85G is very good for around $550 - not sure how that one matches up with Canikon ?

I think the price difference is largely due to the Canon and Nikon lenses being around longer. If you look at the newer releases the prices are much of a muchness

The Sony 85mm F/1.8 is a stellar performer for the price though the Nikon 85mm F/1.8g is also very good I do not know about the Canon
