Re: Mirrorless Recommendation ( Sony Vs Olympus? )

There is:

12mm f2.0
17mm F1.8
20 mm F1.7
25mm F1.4
45mm f1.8
75mm f1.8

Coming up: 42,5 mm f1.2/ 150 mm f2.8

Sony has:.

16mm f2.8
20mm f2.8
24mm f1.8

Unless I forgot something, that is about it. I won't mention the Voigtlanders for m43. They are 0.95 at 17,5 and 25mm I believe.. But MF only.

The 16mm is really a poor lens, the 20mm...I don't know. The 24mm 1.8 is an excellent lens. It is also very expensive. This is also true foor the 12mm and 75 mm Oly. The 25mm Leica is not cheap but a lot cheaper than the 24 mm CZ 1.8. The 20 and 45 mm m43 lenses are inexpensive.

All those m43 lenses are very good to excellent wide open. This is not true for the Sony's currently. The point is that in reallife, object isolation can at least be done as well with m43s. Again: because they are so good wide open and especially the 17 mm f1.8, 20mm 1.7, 25 mm f1.4 and 45 mm f1.8 have nice bokeh. I have the 20 and 45 mm and I think both the object isolation and bokeh is good.
