[font="FrutigerNextW02-Regular, sans-serif"][color="#626262"]This should go some way to addressing the issue of brand new, high-quality glass for mirrorless that isn't wallet obliterating Leica glass.[/color][/font][color=#626262][font=FrutigerNextW02-Regular, sans-serif]

This ridiculously extended answer made me laugh:[/font][/color][color=#626262][font=FrutigerNextW02-Regular, sans-serif]
[b][i]"Will the housing of the new lenses be made [/i][/b][b][i]of metal?[/i][/b][/font][/color][color=#626262][font=FrutigerNextW02-Regular, sans-serif]
[i]The mirrorless system cameras are lighter and more compact in comparison to SLR cameras. With this new line of lenses, we are continuing our concept of high-quality lenses for this camera system while attempting to construct them with relatively light materials. For the mechanical parts, we were looking for the best tradeoff between quality in material and total weight. As a result, we decided on a mix of materials. For parts that require no metal for accuracy or strength, we have also approved lighter materials."[/i][/font][/color][color=#626262][font=FrutigerNextW02-Regular, sans-serif]
Or to put it simply, [b]no[/b]. They'll have cheaper build. But the pictures should look nice and hopefully they'll be a bit more affordable as a result.[/font][/color]
