Here you go, I love this online tool.


That image also helps explain why I've sometimes been using 21/55/100, and why the 55 is my workhorse and only AF lens in that particular kit. I don't like big zooms for the most part, so the C/Y Zeiss 100/3.5 and CV21/3.5 are very compact and light wide and short tele lenses for landscape and city shots. The 55 is for people and low light. Besides wishing for the 35/1.8 everyone craves,

I just got back from B&H where I decided to divest from Batis 2/25, returned my Rokinon 1.8/45, and bought into Sigma 1.4/35 Art.

I like that 21, 35, 85 spread quite a lot, and just can't escape 35 being the most natural wide normal for me that bisects the angle of view of 21 and 85 almost exactly.

I really wish there was a light, native short tele option a bit longer than the 85 (with speed not the priority), but adapted glass has worked okay for me.

Yes, I hope that Sony does an FE 2.0/105 in the style of their delightful FE 1.8/85. If it were small and chunky but relatively light (compared to Sigma's 1.4 monster) it would be a pleasure to pack.
