Sigma 65f2 vs Sony 85 1.8
1

I have the Voigtlander 21. 3.5 and 40 1.2 with my A7iii and want to add a third also relative small, but AF lens for kid chasing. I'm considering the new Sigma 65 f2 or Sony 85 1.8.

Sigma: A bit shorter (75 vs 82mm), build quality more like the Voigtlanders (more premium), sharper, 65mm may far enough from 40 for third focal length, also more versitale as general AF lens.

Sony: A bit lighter (371 vs 405g), bit faster, buy used one is significant cheaper (~420 vs 700Eur), the 85mm is a common portrait focal length, also less versitale as one AF lens.
