How is Sony FE 40mm F2.5 G compared with FE 35mm F1.8 ?
Regarding build quality, G series is better than standard series. How about optical quality and autofocus ?

The 35 1.8 is a good performer. Ultra sharp center frame with little issue on outer edge. Almost as good as the 35 1.4 minus a difference in contrast.

I'm very conflicted about the ZV-1 deal as I just bought the Canon M200 at $450 with a kit lens. I'll likely opt for the much more compact 22mm lens for the Canon to make it more portable. Otherwise, I was actually waiting for a deal like this since the ZV-1 is arguably more portable.

Honestly, I'd had such a bad experience when dipping my toes into the Sony camera ecosystem last with the DSC-QX100 that I'd wanted to stay away (why buy another 1" sensor camera from Sony when I technically already have one... even if it is mostly unusable!). But I can't deny that the ZV-1 might make an easier travelling companion for vacation photography.

Obviously either the ZV-1 or the M200 would likely make for great convenience cameras. I worry that I'm underestimating the portability of the M200 once I get a smaller lens, or perhaps overestimating the comparable portability of the ZV-1 (since they're really quite close in size).

Good luck!
Jon

The ZV-1 is good for what it is- but offers very little flexibility. The M200 will be a bit larger but have a larger sensor size and give you the flexibility of adding a ton of different lenses in the future. It depends on what is important to you but I would not give up an APSC interchangeable lens camera for a point and shoot myself.

I would go so far as to say I know your right... but having only the kit lens right now makes it very hard to consider this camera compact. Right now I feel as if I should overpay for the 22mm lens if only to quickly determine if the camera will indeed be compact enough for me as a jacket pocket camera. Kudos to Canon as well in that I was quickly able to start taking photos and use basic functions right away.

Thanks for encouraging me to stick with the APS-C camera. Certainly nice so far, just ungainly with that kit lens.

Good luck!
