Why would Sony make a 30mm f/2.8 when they have the 30mm f/3.5 macro and the 35mm f/1.8? Both lenses are very good.

Yes, indeed.  And why would they when Sigma already does?  And who would be interested in buying?  I doubt Off The Mark would, And he’s the one who brought it up.

over the years, I’ve seen many people complain about this or that lens missing from the lineup, but i always doubted that most people actually bought all of the different designs - they just like the option to be there.  While some do have a particular need, the first lenses that need to be produced are ones most people would find beneficial.

Curiously, the 30/3.5 was available pretty early, but if it’s not f1.4, it’s not exciting enough.
