comment Really? Why does a Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 cost almost $2,000?
Of course there is a profit motive, and both R&D/tech and profit are factors. I don't think Stan is saying there isn't a profit motive. But glass is expensive, and good glass is expensive to make. The Canon 35/1.4 was introduced in 1998, while the Nikon equivalent quoted was introduced in 2010; the advances alone will have made a huge difference in cost, and hence, pricing.

comment Soft 24-105L images
That's an idea, but take more than a couple of shots just to be sure.
