The SEL35F18 is a nice lens and while I originally bought it to supplement my other lenses, in reality it stays on my NEX-7 the majority of the time. It's become my go-to lens, and can handle whatever I throw at it. It's sharp too, and lightweight. Not cheap but look on Amazon for used/returned deals from Amazon Warehouse Deals, and purchase something in Like New condition. This is how I have acquired most of my NEX kit and have saved hundreds.

Sigma AF 30mm f/2.8 EX DN A

For best resolution of the 30mm Sigma Lenses , the Sony 30mm Macro or the 35mm Sony f1.8

Very low distortion 0.27 % barrel of all 30 or 35mm lenses

Very low weight ( Best for NEX )

Very Small size  ( Best for NEX )

Best perspective and focal length for NEX

As tested here :

These are my reasons for liking the 30mm Sigma against the others .

The price is extremely low also compared to all but one , which is very close in price .
