I appreciate your info. You are right. As it was mentioned here - SAL35f18 should do just fine or even try kit lens first (at least it has OSS) and go from there.

The SEL35F18 is an E-Mount lens with OSS. For low light it is a very nice "normal" lens. F1.8 and OSS is not really common, usually ... for moving subjects not important though.

But it is also expensive.

You could also go for a Konica AR 40mm f1.8

That should cost you like 50$-70$ including the adapter and a few extra $ for a good lens hood (the Konica 40mm really lacks contrast if it's wide open without a hood).

It is really a nice lens .... not as sharp as a modern lenses .... and it has quite a bit purple fringing wide open ... a bit longer than the 35mm lenses (eq 50mm) but a good choice if you don't want to dish out a couple hundred for a fast 35mm lens.
