Anyway, I've ordered another Sony/Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8 (I've owned one previously), it should be here early next week.

The problem I have with Sony Sonnar 1.8/55 is that its not really "normal" to me. The AOV of 55 is alarmingly closer to the AOV of 85.

WIth AF prime bookends of 25 and 85, 40 is the perfect bisector, and 45 would have been nicely close to that.

I'm torn about Sony Sonnar because I know it is one of the greatest lenses ever, but I need the Sony 1.8/40 that is just as good or better. I should probably not hold my breath for that.
