Hello,

I am looking for compact and speedy lenses for street photography with my new A7R . What would you perfer - the native FE 35mm F2.8 with autofocus or tiny Voigtländer 35/2.5?

I prefer the native Sonnar... it's the better lens for the A7r.  The only reason to choose the 35mm Color Skopar is if you are opposed to AF.
