Re: Sony Zeiss 24-70/2.8 or 135/1.8?

The 135mm is a great lens, and in my limited experience with it thus far, it lives up to its billing. For my uses, I'm debating to get the 85mm Zeiss to use for my current 135mm purposes. The only regular use I have for the 135mm is photos of my three month old daughter, and the 135mm is usually a tad longer than I want for the inside candids I do with her. I'm pleased with the results from my 24-70CZ lens, but the background and sharpness of the 135mm are better. I hope the 85mm would be similar.

I mention this, as you might want to consider the 85mm Zeiss lens, since you already have a good 135mm lens.
