do not get the 55 1.8. the 50 1.8 is very underrated and sharp enough for the a73. much better value.

Really?

The Sony FE 50mm f1.8 is a terrible lens.

Slow and noisy AF motor, the barrel extends when focusing, soft in the edges/corners at wider apertures, and it has terrible LoCA.

The Zony FE 55mm is an amazing lens with a great reputation. Its only flaws are bad LoCa and occasionally noticeable onion ring bokeh.
