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

Judging from the many threads that discuss the price of FE lenses, I'm probably in the minority of those who don't complain.

If I divide the price by number of years used for my lenses, it is not that much.

I don't attempt to justify the prices set by the manufacturers, but if I want a native lens for my camera, I get it.

For the FE 2,8/35, its enticement for me is its tiny size for an FE lens, which makes it inconspicuous for many situations.
