Re: one Lens only sony 55 1.8 or Batis 40mm?

My take: if close focus distance is a priority then the choice is obvious.

For me, 40 isn’t really a lens where shallow DoF is a priority, especially since F2 isn’t that fast for a wider lens like that as far as blur potential. 55 gives more portrait options for people shooting. You can pair it with the ultra light and tiny Samyang 35/2.8 for less weight than the Batis alone. Both lenses are also far smaller than the Batis and cost about the same as the Batis combined. Those two are easy to throw in a bag as go anywhere lenses. If you need just one lens, then it’s aboht your preferred focal length more than anything.
