Re: Sell my SEL24f18Z for a SAL 1680Z - am I mad?

Thanks all for your replies. I think that I will go and sell the CZ24 and get the 1680. I went to try  out one in a shop today but they didn't carry any in stock. Instead I tried out a Sigma 30 f2.8 and although the build was worse (which doesn't bother me too much for the price) I was very impressed by the sharpness. That maybe a better alternative to the Sony 35mm and about a third the price although it is f2.8 vs 1.8. Have you guys any experience of comparing those 2 ?
