Thank you for sharing that. The Sony a7C has gone down in price significantly even compared to last summer, I have it on my watch list on CEX of it shows up in stock because it goes for 1K £. The only downside I ever felt with it (when I had it) is the significant rolling shutter in electronic mode, which makes it difficult to use silently for street shooting from the hip (I have a very strange way of doing street photography).Just for fun, a couple of snapshots taken with the a7C paired with Samyang's 45mm and 75mm:

Both make a very nice pairing with the little a7C. I don't have the Samyang 85/1.4 for Sony, but I had it for the EOS R. And that lens wouldn't pair nearly as well with the little C, being a huge hunk of glass. The 75 on the other hand handles like a dream with the C.
I think both lenses render very nicely. I had the Sony FE 50/1.8 briefly, and I like the Samyang AF 45 a lot better. It's sharper and has less problems with CA. I kinda forgot the little fortyfive for a while since I accidentally bought a mint used Zeiss 55, but on the C the Samyang is a real winner. The pair handles nicely, the autofocus works really well and the IQ leaves little to desire.
At the moment I am waiting to see if the Sony a7R II will show up in stock at CEX because it goes for about 800 £ while I am trying to save up money for it. The a7R II has better AF and IQ because of its newer sensor design (instead of recycling the same sensor on a7 II from all the way back to Sony a900).
I have time to wait, and patience (most of the time ), since Sony a7 IV came out the entire Sony stack is going down in price on the used market. Though some of the BSI and Stack sensors based cameras still seem to be holding on to their price a bit more (A9 and A7R III).
