Re: Lens question regarding the a7r

Here's a few options:

  • Wait. Rumour has it that the large aperture standard prime on the roadmap for this year will be a native E-mount short telephoto prime. This seems at least plausible since this lens has been on roadmaps for a while now; it's long overdue.
  • Any one of a vast number of excellent manual focus primes, Samyang 85mm f/1.4 seems a decent choice
  • LA-EA4 + (SAL 85 f/2.8, Zeiss 85 f/1.4, Zeiss 135 f/1.8, Minolta 85mm f/1.4, Minolta 100 f/2, Minolta 100 f/2.8 soft, Sigma 85mm f/1.4, Minolta 135mm f/2.8, Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro, Sony/Minolta 135mm STF, Tamron 90mm macro, ...)
  • Contax G 90mm f/2.8 with either AF or MF adapter
  • FE 70-200mm f/4 zoom
  • Use the FE 55mm in APS-C crop mode. It's a very good lens, even when cropped.
