The 55mm 1.8 is also very expensive. But it seems to be very good.
Just a quick 'n dirty question. Suppose one has got a NEX or another APS-C Sony camera and wants a tack-sharp normal. So far I've thought of the Touit 1.8/32; but what about using the Sonnar FE 2.8 ZA? Sure, you loose 1.3 stops of max aperture; but you also save 40% weight and I suppose that using only the central part of a lens designed for FF should give a great uniformity in sharpness across the frame... Is it a crazy idea?

Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
All full format lenses will be tested on APS-C as well.
Technically you should get superior border quality with a full format lens. The overall sharpness may be a tad lower though.
