About a 35mm prime: which current lens is on par with this one?
4

I currently own an A7C plus a SIGMA DN DG 35/2 and also own an RX1RII. I always thought that the Zeiss Sonar was the one to beat. Looking though some files (as in photos, but the files were all RAW) I found some pics that made me think: which current lens is even remotely close to this one?

A few examples, shot with the original RX1 as well as the RX1RII. I also had the RX1r.

RX1 24Mpx

RX1RII cropped to 24Mpx

RX1RII full res (I think)

So here's hoping for an RX1RIII after all this time ... or - alternatively - a lens that matches this one.

Of course the easiest path would be to go expensive - and hope for the best - that would be a 35/1.4. But is the IQ similar in its execution? Or another lens?

Some examples would be great! Thanks

P.S.: And then of course there is the size difference, but that's not my main concern here:

camerasize.com

The 35/1.8 not much smaller and no aperture ring. Not really a pretty lens as such:

No 35/2 Sigma on camerasize.com sadly.
