Yup. Dem wives don't come with a satisfaction guarantee, suitability for use fair business terms. Zip. Nada. And the maintenance. Whoa!

anyways, I was asking about stabilization to compensate for camera shake. moving subject is a different matter, I suppose. I was thinking about an 50mm F/1.8 lens as well with the sony A57.

You are asking an open ended question. Thus you will get an open ended response.

IS depends on light level in the room. If you have enough light, then your ISO + f/no per focal length will be enough for general purposes. That is IF you use the lens at f/1.8 - which may not happen if you set the camera to green AUTO. At f/1.8, the depth of field of the 50 will be shallower than the 35 and for general cheesy photos, you may not get enough sharpness across the scene. Also, as I explained in some thread, the 50 will force your back against the wall as it is too magnified.

You are not comparing apples to apples, you are not making an closed ended question so the decision to go one way or another will not be resolved in your head.
