Those lenses are going to be very attractive for A7C owners due to size and price. 40 seems like a bit of an odd choice though. Maybe they didn't want to cannibalize sales of their existing 35mm.

Very nice lenses for the A7c, but pricing is very ambitious...700€ for a tiny compagnon...wow.

But ok lets wait for the real world reviews and a price drop.

I actually like the 40mm FL and have done for years going back to film days. More recently have used 40mm Summicron and Minolta CL versions on various A7RII/III so have been hoping for a decent AF 40 for some time. Did try the Batis and while liking the output found it a little on the bulky side. I will watch the 40mm 2.5 with interest in the reviews.
