Which Zeiss Batis would you buy if you could ONLY buy ONE? For me its the 2/25
25 but only because I already have a Voigtlander 15mm otherwise it would have been the 18.
The one with the focal length I need.
Can we do this for the loxia because i'm all over that 21 like a fat kid on a cup cake.
At the moment I'm thinking the Batis 25, as that lens would probably be the most useful for me as a general "walk around", and could do double-duty at 36mm in crop mode.
The 18 is tempting, though, as is the Loxia 21.
The 25. The other two are tempting, but I rationalized...25 is closer to a focal length that I would use most often, and it's f/2 fast.
And there isn't a competitive legacy lens as a substitute for a good price.
The 85 would become a shelf queen, unless I shoot head shots every day.
Ha ha, not really a hypothetical scenario for me.
To me, each one is almost equally tempting... and equally hard for me to justify spending that much money on.
Only one ever? Or like, "only one this year"?
Why don't you make a poll for all Loxia's then?
it didn't say ever, you can change your vote answer later if you like. But for now....
85 because it's a focal length I use more often.
In terms of what's lacking in what I have, probably either the 25/2 or the 18/2.8, then. I want to say the 85, but between my Contax G 90mm and my FD85L, I really don't need another 85mm, if I'm honest with myself.
Dishonesty with myself, however dictates that I want the whole set.
