Now I get it re the 50mm f1.8. I just received it and put it on my a6500. AF is not what one might expect. And while it generally works better in af-c than af-s, in some focus mode/small aperture combinations it never stops hunting. Great AF is a selling point of the a7iii and this lens will just cripple the af on that camera. Not always horrible, but certainly not great. I'll see how it does on the a7iii, and will also see how I like shooting at a shorter focal length with my 35mm f2.8 ZA which is a tiny lens that I love on the crop sensor of the a6500. Or maybe I'll just have to learn to get along better with my a6500.

It sounds like you will be happier with APS-C and that's OK! Keep on eye on Zeiss to introduce small full frame pancakes in the future.
