Re: What is the bokeh like on the FE55 1.8?

Thanks for the replies. That settles it. I'll get the 55 to go with the 35 which I already like. Perhaps the 24-70 later on if I still feel there is a gap. For the price the 24-70 feels like a compromise and not value. I hope the rest of the Sony lenses for A7r aren't like that. You can buy virtually any Fuji lens and know you are getting one of the best. Sony needs to be at that standard or better.


Given the benchmark FE55 sets, FE85 may be another lens to watch for. The trio of 35, 55 and 85 could be awesome and may not need a normal zoom consideration at all. Or, perhaps the 16-xx for ultra wide. Sony could create a pretty solid line with just 3-4 more lenses (uw zoom, 85, macro and a 70-300 tele).
