Re: Another 25mm ?

We must have a definition of small.  I own quite a few native FE lenses and Loxias are small by any measure in context of Sony Zeiss, Zeiss Batis, Sony G/GM lenses.  By a meaningful margin too.  So much so, that I leave the Zeiss Lens Gear Rings on mine all the time, even on those, now-rare for me, occasions when I use it for stills.  Anything smaller and I bet most people, like me, would start running into handling/ergonomics issues.  It's one reason I never cared for the Zony 35 2.8 lens...

And since we have just one other high end native 25mm so far (Batis 25), I don't see how it's a problem of having "Another 25mm?".  In time, it's plausible that Sony will add their own version of G/GM 24mm prime, likely something faster than 2.0/2.4... until then, I think it's great to have two very very different 25mm Zeiss primes.
