View Full Version : Zeiss lenses need to drop in price

After further review ... the Carl Zeiss line of lenses for the SONY DSLRs truly need to drop in price in order to make the line competative. Surely getting them under the $1K line would be a move in the right direction for marketshare and general availability.

Personally, there is no way I can justify $1K+ lenses for hobby use. It's just asking too much out of this economy.

"All forum and forum for all!" In other words, "Get 'em!"

As Long As People Are Willing To Spend That Much They Will Stay High...

I agree re Zeiss pricing.

This baby's about $1300 in the US of A.

Check out its price in Australia!!!

Good Lord, your money isn't worth much down there, is it? These are, indeed, "dark times" for photographers. :(

Considering the government has to turn back $600 per tax-payer ... I'm a bit dubious of the "great shape" we will be in by the end of the summer. Although, everyone should have a new camera or lens by then.
