Better investment than 24/1.8 Z

considering this is the best and overpriced lens for E-mount, i am considering a better investment for my a6300

Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM (relatively new) + Metabones Speedbooster

The Canon has image stabilization and is considered a hidden gem by many, it will be transformed into 24mm 1.4 with OSS and i get to gain the speedbooster for an FF like experience

used, both can be grabbed for less than the Z official price and if you have the a6500 you can even try the cheaper 35/f2 without IS (discontinued-used)

35 f2 no IS:

The latest metabones firmware has great support for the a6300/a6500 fast AF

Z24/1.8 is 225grams

34/f2 IS is 330grams

just picture the metabones on top

what do you think?
