Image quality-wise the Contax is a little better for me, the colors and clarity are very good, and I love the look of the images. They simply look better to me.... having said that, the 50mm has OSS stabilization and autofocus, both pluses to some people, considering that they cost about the same (here in europe anyway) but

for my money, and all-around versatility, the 50 is a fantastic lens. It depends on your style, personal preference and subject matter.

I find that I use the contax 35mm f/2 more than the 45mm f/2 because the 45 is very close to the 50 in field of view.

At comparable f-stops I think the Contax is the tiniest bit sharper, but it maybe the user focusing very carefully with the Contax and taking the AF's word for it on the Sony.
