Sony vs Sigma primes: need the optical stabilization?
5 months ago

Thinking of replacing my kit zoom (old NEX-3 with 18-55) with primes to get sharper photos. (Would love to upgrade the NEX body but can't really afford to)

Leaning toward  Sigma 19, 30, 60. The Sigmas rate sharper than Sony in DxO Mark,  and are far less expensive, as comparable Sony lenses BUT -

looks like the Sigmas have no optical stabilization. I usually don't carry a tripod - should I be concerned?

(I wonder in landscapes how dawn/dusk will work with no stabilization, also the occasional close-up)

thanks!
