Re: why are Sony FE lens so expensive ?

The price is simply a factor of Supply vs Demand.  These lenses are newer and there is less competition from older model lenses on the used market.  So Sony can price them higher.

Also, sony has been raising their prices quite a bit lately, I guess to keep the used markets from dropping.... and people have been paying for it.

the RX100 mk6 is $1300, when the previous model(mk v) was $1000,
the APSC A6500 was $1600 with lens, when the earlier model was $1100 
the A7iii is $2000 when the A7ii was released at $1700.

In summary, dont blame sony for asking high prices.  Blame people for customer for paying them.
