Re: Old Prime or new lens for Sony A7mk3

There are lots of choices.

Personally since I have not experienced virtually all those old prime lenses crossing brands and don't want to carry multiple adapters for different mounts, I just stay in two mounts - my familiar EF-mount with MB4 and MC-11 adapters and native FE mount that now most my lenses are. I am largely still a zoom lenses user but gradually collecting more prime lenses. So far I have Canon 17L TS-E, very old EF 15/2.8 fisheye, Sigma EF 150/2.8 OS macro (that likely will be replaced by FE 90/2.8 macro), FE 35/2.8 ZA, FE 55/1.8 ZA, Zeiss Batis 135/2.8 and newly acquired Voigtlander 12/5.6 E-mount, Sigma EF 35/1.4 Art (cheaper than E-mount on street price and AF works equally well via MC-11 while there are reports of E-mount AF issue), Zeiss/Loxia 21/2.8 (going to receive in a few days). FE 85 GM and maybe FE 50/1.4 ZA are in my plan list.
