Has anyone compared these two lenses, for people shots?
Reading various forums suggests that:
- The Batis is more compact / lighter
- The Sony is faster focusing and, being a macro lens, it focuses closer
- The quality control on the Sony is less reliable
- The bokeh on the Sony is swirlier
- The colour on the Sony is more muted
- The Sony has better micro-contrast, if you get a good copy
- The Sony is less expensive, but they are comparable in price
- The Sony is over a stop slower
The weight suggests going for the Batis, but am I missing anything?
