Getting the FE 35mm after the FE 55mm for A7?
Jun 6, 2014

Hi

I just went for a trip with my A7 and while I find the A7 and 55mm FE combo stunning, I realized that there are some field of view limitations with the 55mm. For example, I usually have to do panos (horizontal and vertical) to capture landscapes. Other occasions, such as photographing kids running about, the 55mm is an excellent lens.

Here's my question, will getting the FE 35mm help much if I already have a 55mm? I still like to shoot landscapes, street and tight indoors, which I feel this would do better than the 55mm. Also, after using the 55mm, I also realized that I seldom go below F2.8, as for group shots or people shots I tend to get that "one in focus while the rest are out of focus".

Thanks
