its a very easy answer .. the 50SEL

1. you get the ability for nice defocused background portraits;

2. it performs very well wide open - great for low light/action

3. it has OIS so great for video and low light

4. for Sony E mount lenses its good value

Pity the 35SEL isnt priced like this and pity the NEX AF isnt FAR better in lower light to take advantage

no brainer really unless you just want to just take static pictures of landscapes (enter NEX fanboys) LOL

In low light I have found the 50/1.8 to be slow. The Sigma 30 too.
