The Zeiss 50 1.4 is a heavy lens with heavy glass elements to move around to focus. Of course it would be slower.

Never thought of that.  This lens is a beast though, it has a 77mm filter so the glass is huge.  I love the IQ it produces. I have some lovely kids photo (that I can't share though because my wife don't want them to be public).

@hin, I think the size with the laea4 is large but still comfortable to hold. It is not as heavy as the a99. To me this is not a traveling setup. I would suggest the FE 50mm f1.8.

I bought this on an impulse because of the lack of FE lenses in stores (I can't get shipping to my house because I'm hardly home to sign it).  I will sell this one day and swap to the FE.
