A few posts back I wrote about the interesting proliferation of low cost lenses that have high quality optics. Here's what I wish would be available
Sony NEX E mount
- Low cost 35mm f2 lens. Doesn't need OSS, but a standard prime around $200 would be sweet.
- Low cost 23mm f2.8 lens. A moderately wide prime, even if it isn't fast, would make a great street lens for a NEX. This would make it just like a Fuji X100. The 24mm f1.8 Carl Zeiss is far too big and way too expensive.
- Sigma really have the right idea with their 30mm f2.8 lens, and there are a lot more opportunities to go a little wider with DX - ie between 20-25mm in focal length. I think f2.8 is too slow for a prime though, and I think will limit its potential.
Nikon F mount
- Nikon already have a lot of excellent low cost lenses, but I'd really like to see a 23mm f2.8 DX prime. That also would make a great street lens.
