Finally got angry about lack of 35mm equivalent

Re: Don't bother getting angry...

That Canon 22mm is very intriguing to me. I would almost be tempted to get that kit as a standalone pocketable DSLR rival. (Especially after Canon puts out some more serious MILC bodies and the price goes down...)

But if Sony's Zeiss outclasses the Canon optically, I would probably prefer that for my N7. (Once it becomes available again, not from a scalper...)

And it looks like Sony has a walkabout pancake zoom due soon. So I could just get one of those and then my N7 would also do the pocketable trick. (As long as optics are going to be software-correction-dependent, might as well have zoom...)

I do undersand the frustration over basic primes for e-mount. Especially when the established DSLRs offer the common primes at fairly modest prices (50mm f/1.8s are super cheap). But they lack the MILC advantages (and the FF bodies cost a whole lot more).

Always another compromise... (good thing I'm having such a ball with the old legacy glass :))
