As a purveyor of 35mm lenses, would you sell all your 35mm fe lenses and replace with a Rx1r Mk2? Would it be worth the effort to carry a second camera around all the time? Asking cause it's the same lens as before but upgraded body. Very tempted to sell some wide to normal lenses and replace with the rx1r m2.I have the FE 35/1.4, FE 35/2.8, Loxia 35/2 and RX1. Used to have 24/1.8 on Nex 5n/7.
This was very useful (thanks for doing the test Amin) as I'm trying to pair down the number of 35's I have.
Likewise, I've been surprised at the negative reviews for the Loxia. I've been very impressed by mine. I find the bokeh and other aspects of the lens a little unpleasant at f/2, but stopped down a bit it improves a lot by f/2.8. I've been surprised to find I really, really like the bokeh and more so the pronounced 3D rendering in the f/3.2-4 range. I also like the color rendition of the Loxia, really gorgeous sometimes.
I really like the FE 35/1.4 stopped down to F/2.
I think the RX1 is going - the body and user experience is getting a bit long in the tooth and with reading glasses in my near future, having the EVF on 100% of the time diminishes the advantage over the A7x/35 combos.
So it comes down to two out of three of the 35/1.4, 35/2.8 and Loxia. I am leaning towards 35/1.4 and 35/2.8 and selling the Loxia, but am finding it hard to let go.
