Lens to add for newborn photography?
1

We have a baby on the way for end October and I'm thinking whether I want to add anything to the lenses I already have.

The two lenses I'm most likely to use are the Sony 55 1.8 and the Batis 85 1.8. I may also use a Voigtlander 50 1.2 (when he's not moving, at least, I'm not fast enough with MF for a moving baby). Clearly, I don't really NEED anything else to take great pics...

But...there's a cashback offer on the Samyang 85 1.4 that's intriguing and the lens would give me even more separation, and then I've heard great things about the Batis 40 for baby photography...or should I go the other way and think of taking the plunge on a 135 1.8?

I'll certainly have the opportunity to use them!
