I bought the A7 body only. 55mm is a pure gem. No doubt about it.

But I started to think about traveling. I like to travel with one lens if possible. And when I had a 5N, I traveled with only the 24mm and was happy. 55mm would be a little tight, I think.

So I bought a used kit zoom and I'm trying to use it prior to traveling in late August. But I find myself reaching for the 55mm.

I haven't been a zoom user, period. In any system. but I think it could be a versatile travel lens. will keep trying.

I'm a zoom user but this lens is going to make me think twice about attaching the kit. But not like I have many choices for lens so it'll stay put for now.

I own the FE 35mm, 55mm and 24-70. I found myself always using the 35 and 24-70.

Never really used the 55 so I just sold it to help fund the 70-200 f4.

Seems like everyone loves the 55 hope I did not make a mistake in selling it..

Why didn't you like the 55?
