Are you sure it is for a 60mm ? That sounds quite of weird next to the 50mm, unless it is either 50mm or 60mm (aka Tamron us considering both and will pick the definitive one later), or unless the 60mm is a macro one, or an APSC one (90mm equivalent makes more sense)The patents are for 28/2.8, 50/2.8 and 60/2.8. We do need compact primes.
There could be cheaper A7RII versions without IBIS?Surprising to see optical stabilization in there since Sony seems to be moving towards IBIS in all of their full-frame bodies. Maybe the IBIS+Lens IS combo makes for slightly better stabilization performance? But I might rather have lower lens costs and fewer parts to break.
These lenses look pretty compact from the diagrams, which is great. Smaller lenses, even f2.8 is good IMO. Although we don't really need that 28mm since we already have a pretty compact and affordable f2.
The FE35 1.4 isn't fast enough?Given the performance of zooms I want primes to be fast. The Batis model for F2 or wider is fine with me.
The 25, 85 is a good start. Add a 35 or so and I'm happy. I don't really like 135 as a focal length. Maybe a 200. My all-time favorite portait lens was the 105 Nikkor. I don't even remember what its max aperture was, but it was a great lens for portraits. Would love to see something similar for Sony FE.
