I'm a Sony shooter who uses both full frame and cropped APS-C bodies.

For an a6xxxx body with APS-C I used to own the Sony/Zeiss 24/1.8mm ZA lens but sold it off when I stopped using APS-C for a while. Want to re-enable my use of an a6xxx body again for simple casual travel and and walking around.

I have a full set of full frame lenses but plan to use the 55/1.8 ZA and 35/1.8 FE on it but like most would like to have a "35mm FF FOV" lens. Is there a favorite here people like better than the original 28/1.8 ZA that was APS-C?

Considered using a FE 24/1.4 GM as well and may actually go down that route but wondered what others thought.

Have to admit a Fuji X-T3 with 23mm f/1.4 is a great setup but having two mounts is proving to be more of a burden than I want right now.

Had considered the Loxia 25/2.4 but its MF and slower that I would like

Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Thanks for your time.


If I were buying right now the 24/1.4 G will be on top of my list. In any case, my Sonnar 24/1.8 is a fantastic lens albeit APS-C.
