I've been thinking about the batis 85 for a while although the size and price is a slight concern personally but I'm wondering if the lenses sony said are to be announced soon will include a sony 85mm option or not? What's the chances of sony releasing a smaller and cheaper 85 f1.8 shortly after the batis release? If they did release one I'd probably go that route instead of the batis if it performed as well as the 28 and 55 (maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part)
I think the sony zeiss strategy is to fill all the focal lengths first, anything else is secondary. They need 2.8 zooms, and after that, they're fairly complete, and should work on more affordable lenses as well has high end glass. I do like the idea of inexpensive, small, good sony glass, like the 28/2. a sony 50 and 85/100 would be great. Not everyone wants to dish out 1K for a prime.
