I recently got the NEX-6 but was disappointed with the 16-50mm kit lens. I sold the kit lens and got the 24mm Zeiss. Now I'm deciding whether to get the new Sony 35mm or the old 50mm lens. Is 24mm and 35mm too similar?

I am thinking about it.  I'd really like to have the 24, 35, and 50 Zeiss macro (right now I have 50/1.8 OSS).

The 35 gives a 50mm FOV, which is my favorite for general purpose shooting...  The 24 is not always flattering for close up portraits, and the 50 sometimes is just too much focal length (as in, can't move back far enough indoors).

The glass system seems to be coming along soooo slowly, though.  C'mon Sony!
