Yeah, so I'll flat out tell you I'm one of those guys who has an affinity for shallow DoF photos.

I am looking to purchase the SEL35F18 lens to use for indoor portraits, particularly ones in poor lighting conditions.

I do not own, nor have I ever used the SEL50F18, but I do have a 50 F1.7 Rokkor-X I get away with, but the FL is just too long for use indoors, and for my style of photos, unhandy for outdoors as well. (I'm on a tight budget, the lens was cheap, so I make it work)

I'm looking online to find samples of indoor/outdoor portraits shot (wide open) to get a feel for this lens. But the pickings are slim. The main reason I'm considering the SEL35F18 vs something cheaper like the Sigma 30 is because of the wide aperture. I want my subject to pop out of the scene a bit more, using a shallow DoF. And F2.8 simply isn't wide enough to get what I want.

Would anyone be able to help me out and show off some of your shots/samples?
