Re: Multiple Options for a First Lens paired with a Sony A7iii

Instead of the Batis 85mm, consider the Sony 85mm/1.8 FE (I have this). AF is good, sharp, acceptable bokeh (at least to me), and cheaper.

I've read that the AF of the Sony 50mm/1.8 FE can be a bit noisy (not good for video use with on-board mics) and can lag in low light.

Alternatively, rent some glass before committing to buying a lens since you are still uncertain. Or buy a lens but supplement it on jobs with rented lenses to fill in gaps.
