Reader Question: Sony A7R III Lens Kit

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist.

Andrew F writes:

The equipment I was thinking of buying is:
- Sony A7R III
- Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8
- Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4
- Sony 55 mm f/1.8
- Sony FE 100 mm f/2.8 STF (for its unbelievable bokeh)

Do you have any quick thoughts on my choice of equipment? I'm an amateur enthusiast, and I like taking pictures of landscapes and historic buildings/towns. I'm planning to upgrade from a micro four thirds camera with a zoom lens.

Could you describe the amount of sharpening that you have given to the sample photos taken with these particular lenses.

DIGLLOYD: sharpening is shown for every aperture series of all brands—click “View ACR Settings” in such series. Sharpening depends partly on aperture; more is needed for f/9 onwards from diffraction. See also post processing and Making Sharp Images.

As to gear—my first advice is to sit on the fence a few months to see what evolves from Sony—the Sony A7R III is now a year old, so it’s due. Also, with the holidays coming there may be good discounts even better than Black Friday last week.

I offer one-on-one consulting for camera system selection, well advised for anyone putting together a system approaching $8K as above—it’s easy to spend in ways that won’t work it—I probe for details that might direct things better.

Given the stated goals, the lens choices are good but for these points:
