Re: Sony FE 50 1.8 vs Samyang 45 1.8 vs Samyang 35 1.8

E mount is almost spoiled for choices IMO...

That being said, I'd like to see something more modern yet in the vein of the 28/2... Maybe wider or simply sharper from f2. I'm loving the Sony 20/1.8 but it's a fair deal larger/pricier than most of these other options.

TheTamrons are priced to move but they're still a little bulky for f2.8s w/so-so AF IMO; they should've ditched the 67mm filters, it made sense to share that amongst their zooms but maybe not beyond that. Samyang ought to throw us something in between the 18 & 35 besides the pancake, 24mm f2-ish would make plenty of sense...

OTOH there's a few 24s already and 28mm has seemingly not gotten any native AF love since the 28/2, kinda weird. The more options one has the pickier one gets, heh.
