zeiss 24mm f1.8 or SEL35mm f1.8
Jan 8, 2013

I Know this has been disscussed in this forum before and read them all, however my case is a bit different.

I use the sigma 19mm for landscape, SEL50mm f1.8 and mc rokkor 50mm f1.4 for portrait(outdoor),md rokkor 135 f2.8(rare and outdoor) and SEL18-200mm for wild photography. but I feel that really I need a prime lens for indoor low light like either SEL24 or SEL35. however I am working in Qatar, the sony dealer didnt released the SEL35mm yet and when I called the customer service asking when it will be released they said it might not be released here and currently they have only the zeiss 24 for 5000 QR (1400USD) which is more than three times the sel35mm.

I have a shipping address in the US and I can buy the SEL35 online from amazon or ebay (450USD)but I am afraid to recieve a defective lens.

in this case what should I do ?
