Re: Will the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS E-mount Make The Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 Less Desired?

they are both considered "normal" focal lengths, so yes, given more options people might choose one over the other. in practice though they are actually quite different. As a one lens solution I would choose 24mm over 35mm; it gets difficult sometimes shooting indoors when you're trying to get everyone in the picture, or when trying to get some landscape pictures. Benefit of 35mm over 24mm is that it'll be easier to get candid shots, but I'm not into taking pics of random strangers on the street, and even if I do there's the Sony 50mm 1.8 that does a better job for that.
