Re: What lens?

Sigma 35/1.4 Art

Most resolving K mount AF lens so far with minimum CA (has less CA than DFA* 50/85).

Then both DFA*50 + DFA*85 and then FA31/1.8 followed by FA77/1.8

And also DFA50/2.8 Macro can resolve huge amount of detail if you need something rather affordable and your working aperture is between F4-F11. Similar thing is Sigma 70/2.8 Macro.

DFA100/2.8 WR Macro follows, but has more CA and needs some more aperture to shine.

DA35/2.8 Macro can deliver nice results too, with F5.6+.

If zoom, then Sig 18-35/1.8, Sig17-50/2.8.

So it depends on budget, optimal focal length for the application and desired AF performance too. There are things like Zeiss ZK 35/2 manual focus only, which can render stunning details, but is hard to find and is manual focus only.
