Re: initial lens selection for A7Rii

unless you plan on shooting portraits, I'd skip the Batis 85 for now.

To decide what lenses you want/need, you should first look at what you like to shoot, particularly on a regular basis, and then pick lenses to match. I'm surprised that very few people have mentioned the 16-35. Yes it's bigger and heavier than the other primes in that range, but it's a superlative lens that covers the entire range beautifully. It's on my camera 95% of the time. I also have the 55 which is just fine for portraits, but also a little wider than the 85 in case I want to do a group portrait (like a family holiday photo that I'm doing for friends this weekend). But hey, if you have money to burn, go for all the other lenses!
