Why the 85 mm over a 50 mm, though?

50 mm seems more useful to me.

  • Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 (or some other ultrawide prime) + FE 24-105mm F4

It is quite the dilemma!

Very nice setup that I overlooked somehow.

I really like to have a wide angle zoom, though. And if going for an ultrawide prime, I would rather pick something with F2.8 or brighter. Otherwise the advantage would be just weight and not much else. Also the 12 mm Voigtlander that I had for some time didn't offer the best image quality. Now, if there was a Sony or Zeiss prime with 15 mm or wider... that would be a different story.

The 85mm is to just give a bit more reach. 35mm is too close to 50mm for me.

I just have a hard time giving up my Voigtlander 15, even if it is slow:
