Sony 35mm 2.8 FE is going back...

Ok, before you think this is a negative thread, well, it's not. I love the lens and haven't tried any other lens that give me sharpness and 3d contrast like this one does.

Unfortunately, I am on a budget so I can't keep everything. If it were 2.0 AND had IS (OSS for Sony I think...) I would keep it. But my new Canon 35mm 2.0 IS gives me very good results and also a much closer minimum focusing distance.

As you probably know, in A mode, the A7r seems to want to live in the 1/60 range so in low light if I don't have the eve pressed against my face, I miss the shot. But with IS, I usually get the shot.

Too bad cause I really like the size, IQ and focus is great and spot on.

I have about 6-7 L lenses from Canon but I really want to get a least one native (FE) A7r lens. Maybe the 24-70 will be better as an all purpose lens for when I don't have much time to capture the shot...

I would buy all 3 but any $$ spent on FE can't be used with any of my other bodies (5DMKIII and 70D) but Canon is mostly fine on the A7r.
