Another 35mm thread. For a7c this time.

Hello everyone. I know you're probably sick of 35mm question, but... 😄

I have 2 weeks to decide on which 35mm to get for my a7c. I'd really love f/1.4 for background blur (I'm kinda bokeh slut 😄), but the overall size/weight is a concern. I want to be able to take my camera with me on travels. And 35mm will be a workhorse there.

So, the options are:

1. Samyang/Rokinon 35mm f/1.8 - $330

2. Sony 35mm f/1.8 - $540

4. Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG DN - $790

5. Sigma 35mm f/2 - $590

#4 is the least probable candidate cause it's more expensive than Sony 1.8 and 1/3 ev slower. I don't really need all-metal body and don't want aperture ring, so...

As for the rest - I'm lost 😄 If only Sigma 1.4 was a bit smaller... Guess it's not a big deal with a7-3, but what about a7c? And Samyang is so cheap that I'm thinking if it makes sense to get Sony over it.

The main question is 35/1.4. It was my dream to get such lens, it'll hurt my wallet a bit, but oh well. But if I won't take it with me on my trips, it won't make sense to get one.

I'll be very grateful for any help.
