Which is better, if price was not the constraint?

As long as you're sticking to aps-c, the Sony is better.

The advantages of the beercan: full frame, constant f4, and CHEAP.
It's a good lens with beautiful bokeh, but it isn't as sharp as the Sony, and it suffers from really bad purple fringing. Not to mention that the Sony is wider and longer.
