Hello,

I realise that this subject has been mentioned before.

I have purchased the A7R iii and have still to decide on a 35mm lens ( my favourite focal length )

I like the idea of manual focus. Like to shoot street, travel and landscape.

I love the look of the Loxia ( colours , micro contrast etc )

Is it capable at F5.6 or F8 of producing excellent A2 landscape / travel prints at 42mp ( ie prints with great colour , very good sharpness , typical Zeiss colour )

Thank you very much

Didn't you already start a thread on this a couple weeks ago...?

Hi COtoNY,

Yes I did indeed. I have since ordered the A7R iii and was particularly interested in the Loxia 35mm and i's ability combined with the A7R iii to produce large A2 prints. You are right and perhaps I should have kept to that thread and not started a new one.

Very short: The Loxia 35 mm f:2 lens matches the A7rIII nicely, and now you should be aware of the temperament of this somewhat peculiar lens (I like mine a lot).
