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 new lens is significantly sharper, essentially perfectly corrected for chromatic abberations, have a quieter (and I suspect: faster) focus mechanism and tighter overall build quality. The 85mm 1.8G is good value, but it is an dinky, old lens.
