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.

What happened to the 35mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.8 lenses?

And even the Sigma 19mm and 28mm lenses become the equivalent of f/2.1 in terms of DOF when compared to µ4/3.

Thanks for the correction. I don't know how I forgot them, because when I looked the lenses up for this answer I saw these actually on the Sony site!

It is an important correction of my list, because the 35mm f1.8 is a very good lens indeed. 500 euro is a bit expensive, but it is not unlike the Leica 25mm 1.4 from that perspective either. It is also stablised so yes, this lens is a very good choice indeed!

50 mm f1.8: seems reasonable with an excellent bokeh. Not as good as the former nor the m43 lenses, but still could be very usefull.
