    24mm or better, faster than f/2.8?

    Cheers, Jock

    Manual or AF? What will you be shooting?

    Voigtlander 21/1.8 comes to mind... manual focus and not particularly small, but awesome.

    Sorry but I have no experience with the Voigtlander lenses, but I understand that the whole range is awesome. Someone commented that the CV 15/4.5 V3 is great too, but I cannot verify as I don' have this lens.

    I would go with an SLR lens for the Sony A7. Lower cost, and better suited for the Sony Sensor.

    I recently picked up a Nikkor 24mm F2. It's great, much less cost than the RF lenses.
