Reading all this with a7CR and the Sigma i series in mind, I'm looking into the 50mm f2. That said, in appreciation of the f2.8 look of the best zoom lenses, and wanting the best lens to be on the camera most of the time, would the 16-35 GM II really be too big? I know from APS-C that the Sony 85mm f1.8 carries by the lens and the handling at that size is no problem, other than what other people or I may think. Plus, that range would optimize the coverage of having 26 MP in crop mode.

I dont think the 16-35GMii would be too big. It would still be smaller than the APSC 17-70mm lens

That said, I think a 65mm, 85mm or 90mm would be a better fit if your zoom ends at 35mm.

Yes, but right now I only have primes. Had been thinking of what lenses would I sell to clean house for the 16-35 and have it to cover the 35 FOV, where I like to shoot. Sell the Samyang 18, 24 f1.8, 35 f1.8 and 45 and a couple of others in the budget category. Since I don't have a 50, the new Sigma would be my middle prime, when not going with the zoom. Keep the wide prime pairings covered as-is with Voigtlander 15 and 21 f3.5. As they say, no lens is wasted.

On a related topic- what do folks think of the 24mm f2?

Iím looking to pick up a lightweight 24mm for my A7RV and debating between the Sigma f2 and Samyang f1.8

I shot both these lenses side by side recently on A7C, and I've had multiple copies of each over the fast couple of years.

The Samyang is a fantastic lens for the money - super light and small, it is a great match with the A7C body. It's very sharp and has relatively low CA for a Samyang lens, and it has a neat infinity focus feature for astro.

However, using the Sigma after the Samyang is kind of like putting on a pair of glasses for the first time - you get this new rich world of colours and contrast with smoother rendering. Beautiful lens. It also has an aperture ring, AF/MF switch and better build quality. It's noticeably heavier on the A7C, but it's still relatively small and light, and personally I'm happy to put up with the extra size/weight for the benefits it brings.

We're lucky to have either lens on the e-mount system for a compact option

Appreciate the input - very consistent with what Iíve read so far. Will be on the hunt for a Sigma!
