What gets lost in all the current BS about "bokeh" is 

the very real and useful aspects of how lens design 

sculpts the not-in-focus image details, especially at

the edges. Not the edges of the frame but the edge 

qualities of all things withing the frame. 


The phrase "not-in-focus" is not meant to imply "out 

of focus blurs and blobs". It refers to anything in the 

image that is, to ANY degree, defocused ... which if 

you think about it means about 99% or more of that 

which shines on the sensor or film. It's part of what 

is loosely called "rendering". Just part of, but a very 

significant part.

35mm f/1.8 or f/2 Batis would be perfect.

In my opinion the Sony Zeiss 35mm 2.8 is an exceptional lens...tiny and extremely sharp with the Zeiss "look".I leave it on my A7RII (and also A6000) much of the time.I don't miss the 2.0 aperture since most of the time I use it for just day to day photography or landscapes. 


I would second that? My 35mm Sonnar f2.8 virtually lives on my a7R ll. I don't quite see the issue that the OP is posting?
