Hi everyone,

I finally decide to buy an A7C after years of relying on the iPhone for taking photos. Got the kit lens and a Sony 1.8/85 for portraits. Now I'm struggling with which or whether to buy a prime lens in the 28-35 range because one of the main usages will be taking unlimited photos of my newborn boy in a few weeks 85mm is probably too tight for this purpose

Sony 2.8/35 seems like a perfect prime for A7C due to size/look but I'm a bit worried about the performance indoor (although I would imagine the toddler doesn't move that much at least for the first year).

Sony 2/28 seems like a better lens vs 2.8/35 in most aspects but just slightly bulkier. Is there any reason I should choose 2.8/35 instead of this one?

Sony 1.8/35 also looks like a good one too but bulkier than above

Or maybe not buying a prime for this range and just use the kit lens to start?

Thanks in advance for your input!

Samyang 35/2.8 or Sony 35/1.8.  I'd say 1.8 myself.

I had rather bad luck needing multiple copies of my Samyang 45/1.8 to find one that wasn't completely decentered, so for $300, I'm going Sony.
