lets reverse this - is there ANY Sony FE lens where you are not paying a 30-40 % premium ?

( don't quote me on the % as I am just estimating - I know I could be off)

here is few come to my mind: ( B & H price):

Canon 16-35 F2.8 III $2199, Sony 16-35GM $219

canon is actually $1899 on BH

Canon 24-70 F2.8 II1899, Sony 24-70GM $2198

Canon is actually $1599 on BH

Canon 85 1.4 1599, Sony 85 1.4 $1798

Canon 35L F1.4 1799, Sony 35 F1.4 $1598

Canon is $1649
