I deserve this.

Inspired by my friend @sugarray53, I was originally going to get the Sony 28mm f2 with the 16mm fisheye attachment. Affordable, compact, good reviews, and my shortest prime was the 55mm. This lens would fill a big (narrow) gap in my collection.

Got to play with it hands-on in Akihabara…where it was sitting next to this beast:

The Carl Zeiss 25mm f2 Batis.

Smaller, lighter, and prettier than the Sony lens. It uses an OLED range finder on the barrel and looks like the brain child offspring of Jonathan Ive and Dyson.

I played with it. Love at first shot.

The best sub-55mm lens I’ve ever used. I had to have it.
