sony 35mm 2.8 what justifies the price?
2

I am looking for a good fast 35mm prime for low light situations on full frame body I want something smaller and frankly cheaper than the 35mm 1.4  even though I am suer its a fantastic lens its huge and expensive

looking at the options I find the 35mm 1.8 but that is an E lens not FE

the other option is the FE 35mm 2.8 but for the life of me I can't figure out why this lens has the price tag it has I mean its a 2.8  not even a f2 or 1.8   so is there something special about this lens that justifies the price

I have the nice rokinon 35mm f:1.5 cinema lens but it is huge and is manual focus only   I already own the FE 28mm f2 and  E 24mm  1.8 which is nice on the 6500 getting me close to the 35mm perspective on a cropped body

but I would still like to get a full frame 35mm   what lens have you guys used that you have been impressed with

my budget for this lens would be $500 or under and at least f2 or faster and full frame..    it will be used on a7II so image stabilization is not an issue either
