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? 😉
