Re: Why are the Z lenses so humongous for what they are?


What can this do that the excellent 85 1.8G cannot do? (i'm sure it has better optical properties, but at more than 200% increase in price and the huge size compared to the G version?)

is it that much better to justify the price and size?

The 85mm F1.8G is still awesome. If anyone owns it and the adapter and they're still in love, no need to switch.

For me, I dislike adapters. The FTZ is awesome, don't get me wrong. It's better than I expected. I just prefer native glass and I love how silent the Z 85 is. Optically, I think it's slightly better when you pixel peep, of course. But to the naked eye, the 85mm G is still spot on beautiful.
