At this moment one of my best Sony lenses, the 35 1.4 is 1598 while the Canon 35 1.4 is 1649.

My prior FF system was Canon and the stf Sony lens has no counterpoint in the Canon line so we can't look at that one. And the normal zoom on the Sony line is a bit better lens than the comparable Canon.

I'm not seeing any there there.

Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8 is $2100, Sony's is $2600.  You can compare all kinds of lenses and get different results, but Sony and Nikon overall are more expensive than Canon.
