What is your buy price for the SEL35F18 and SEL1018?
Dec 18, 2012

I'd really like both of these lenses for my NEX-5N but can't get over the sticker shock.  They would probably be used more often than my DSLR gear, but when I compare what I can buy for the price of these lenses, they just seem like poor values considering their build quality isn't as good as their equivalently-priced DSLR counterparts (e.g., Nikon 50mm 1.4G, Sigma 50 1.4, Canon 17-40L, Tokina 16-28).  Heck, with current promotions you can get a Canon 135L for what the 10-18 is selling for.

Anyway, if the SEL35F18 drops $100 to $350, I'll jump.  On the other hand, I would not consider the 10-18 unless it dropped about $300.

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
