If you only pick one, then 35 or 40mm makes sense. There are a lot of options in FE mount. Smallest is Samyang 35/2.8, best all-round option is Sony 35/1.8. The 35 & 40mm Noktons have the widest shooting envelope for the weight, if you are happy with MF.

Yeah, the FE35/1.8 looks like the most rational choice so far. Given the fact that it'll be also used on APS-C camera, where 40 mm lens translates into somewhat weird 60 mm.

Unless more positive reviews for SY35/1.8 emerge, which is even smaller, being really nice optically.

I'd wait a while before buying the Samyang.
