one day i also need to step up my backup system. i'm really damn about it.
Meanwhile I'm so impressed with the focusing ability of the Sony 85mm F1.8. Last night I used my friends 85F1.8 at a theater play rehearsal, the settings was dark but I never have a single trouble with focusing. I remembered one day I shoot a small event on a small room. I used the 2470GM on the R2 and the 85GM on the A6000 hoping to get some candid shots and an extra reach. I had to ditched my A6000 back to the bag, it was useless, it could not focus. So i think I would sacrifice a little creamier bokeh for a better focusing 85. It's better than missing a shot as Gene once said. But I might go with the Batis for the better color and micro contrast, the Batis also have OSS. On youtube's comparison between the batis and the sony, both have the same focusing speed and both are silent. with the Sony I literally could not hear anything while focusing. So expect an 85GM to land at FM soon.
Hey Vinz, are you referring to the Sony SEL85F18 85mm F/1.8? I have that in my wishlist and have come so close to pulling trigger for use on my A6500 on about 5 occasions but for some reason keep holding off. I want to start doing some portrait work and I think this lens would be perfect.
