Re: Good 50mm Lens For Sony Nex ... on a Budget?

I would concur that extreme speed is not very appropriate for close-up work. At greater distances I sometimes yearn for a full-frame for more isolation, but close up, I have isolation and BOKEH to spare with my NEX-7. I rarely open up beyond f/5.6, even when I'm trying to go hand-held.

I did go through the obligatory DoF overcompensation phase when I got back with fast primes again. Thankfully I worked my way through that fairly quickly. 

Close-up with AF-Nikkor 35mm 1:2 shot wide open. Definitely too shallow!
