Would it be completely crazy to replace Zeiss 55/1.8 (that I already own) with this lens? I currently also have 28/2 and 85/1.8. Plan to replace 28/2 with Tamron 17-28/2.8 (had GM 16-35/2.8, but sold it, it was too big for me), then I could cut it with 17-28 on the wide end, 45/1.8 as light walkaround prime (or Batis 40/2 when it gets cheaper) and 85/1.8 portraits/landscape tele...

Yes it would be crazy.

IMO, performance wise the Samyang sits in between the Sony 50mm f1.8 and the Zony 55mm. It's better than the Sony 50mm, but not as good as the Zony 55mm.
