Sony G Master vs Zeiss Batis for A7iii

Hi all,

I was using Canon 700D + 18-55mm kit lens for 6yrs & then got a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM & it made a huge difference in an instant.

I want to move into photography as a hobby just like gaming and bought my first Sony A7 III with 28-70mm kit lens. Since the lens collection of Sony native has really got better recently with 31+ lens natively and third party lens like Zeiss has a equally good collection too.

I'm in a dilemma to choose Sony GM vs Zeiss Batis. My objective is to use Primes only and build a collection from scratch. Starting with a 24mm or 40mm and work my way up until a 135mm

So appreciate if you could give me your thoughts on whether I should buy a Sony GM lens or native lens from Sony or whether I should go for a third-party lens like Zeiss Batis.

Lens considering now from both Zeiss & Sony are the following

Sony GM - 24mm, 85mm, 135mm
Zeiss Batis - 40mm, 85mm, 135mm

Type of photography - family, street, landscape, nature

Also whether Sony 85mm GM would be updated to the new motors and faster AF seen in 24mm from 2018 & 135mm in 2019. This might delay my purchase because I don't want to spend my money to find out that I should have waited for few weeks or couple of months.

Appreciate your thoughts.
