Hello,

I am looking for compact and speedy lenses for street photography with my new A7R . What would you perfer - the native FE 35mm F2.8 with autofocus or tiny Voigtländer 35/2.5?

If you are considering the 35mm 2.5 you should also consider the voigtlander 35mm 1.4 or the voigtlander 40mm 1.4.

Personally I find the look of these voigtlander lenses is very much suited to street photography work. The FE is a bit too clinical for my taste for street.
