I have the FE 50mm f1.8 and since is now active Sony cashback I decide to pull the trigger on Zeiss 55mm f1.8 I'm not a big fan of huge lens and f1.8 seems the sweat spot for me

I like the lens the only thing I don't like about this lens is minimum focus distance

Since I can still return it I was wondering if I can find a better option with similar size and weight but most important IQ

If I have to step up I think in size I think I would prefer to go for Tamron 28-75 but is f 2.8 and I'm not sure is I could really see the difference in out focus area but I guess the answer is YES since 50mm is not a long focal length

The Voigtlander 50mm F2 has a bit better IQ, but is manual focus.  It is a wonderful lens.  I love the color and rendering as well as the extremely high resolution.  A near perfect lens and quite small.
