Re: Help - struggling to select light, compact 35mm "walkabout" lens

I've been schooting with an A7II for two weeks now and the only "native" lens I have for it is the Samyang 35mm f2.8 FE. I'm definitely satisfied with it's performance. Focus is reliable, center sharpness is great wide open already, corner sharpness is fine wide open and improves to excellent when stopped down to f5.6 and CA is almost absent. Vignette is clearly there at f2.8 and gradually reduces when stopping down, quite to be expected I guess.

At half the price of the Sony I can fully recommend it.
