Re: Is there a need for F1.4 lenses....

"Most people value faster lenses more than slower ones"


As per this threads topic. We don't know what "most people" value more. Some people like me prefer compact/light lenses with slight optical compromises instead of bulky heavy lenses with less optical compromises.


"Price an f1.4 and an f2.8 lens the same...which one would sell more? I have a guess"


It depends if the f2.8 lens is a 70-200mm, a macro lens, or even the Sony 100mm STF lens?

So it ain't always cut and dry is it? 😉
