Re: Travel lenses for the Sony a7 r2

You’re getting great advice. I recently came back from Morocco and Portugal

i had the A7rii along with a Batis 25mm, 55mm and 85 1.8

the Batis was in the camera about 70% of the time

85mm about 25% and 55mm 5%. The 55 is sharp but I don’t love that focal length

However I came back wishing I had the 16-35 instead of the Batis 25

there were lots of times I wish I could go wider than 25

ive since used the 16-35 f4 a few times. Very handy overall and I like it, but not completely in love with the IQ

The 2.8 has received amazing reviews from DXO Mark, if the price is ok and you don’t mind the extra size, that’s the answer

My three lenses would be 16-35, 35mm 2.8, 85mm 1.8

16-35 either f4 or f2.8 it will be on my camera most of the time

35mm 2.8 when I want something light

85mm portraits
