Lens Recommendations

I am looking for two moderately priced prime auto focus lens' for my EA50's:

- approx. 70mm @ f4
- approx. 125mm @ f4

they will be used for live events with decent ambient lighting used simultaneously (70mm on the wide and 125mm on the tight) Any suggestions would be fantastic.

Re: Lens Recommendations

I'm looking to get the new Sony 18-105 power zoom for use filming live events when it's released...
I sometime use the 50mm 1.8 with the digital zoom, it's working ok. But the 50mm seems much slower at autozoom and face recognition than the stock 18-200PZ...

Not really sure what other alternatives there are. Maybe the A lenses with the adapter? Can you use autozoom and face recognition with metabones adapters?

Re: Lens Recommendations

that lens seems to be a good option with a good range @f4 constant. wonder what it will run? i have decided to stay away from adapters and will see what E mounts i can find.
