I don't recall seeing a f1.8 zoom until now
How about 6-60mm F/1.6 for US$410? Or 8-48mm F/1.2 for US$460?
It's all a question of image circle diameter and back focus length, and it's about time that crop camera users get to take full advantage of their smaller sensor and mirror.
You forgot, for a 1/3". And that's a F1.6 lens. I don't think you can compare that F1.6 lens on a 1/3 sensor to a F1.8 lens on a 1/1.6 sensor. That's F1.8 at almost twice the sensor area.
Actually APSC is about 10 times the sensor area of a 1/3 sensor
