I don't know if anyone mentioned the SEL 50 1.8 but its a great lens. Even more so when you consider the price & its excellent OSS. I have the Sigma 60mm prime also & the Sony is even better imho.

Reviews say the Sigma has more sharpness than the Sony, I have the Sigma and I want to buy the Sony too for its OSS and f/1.8 awesomeness, but I don't think the Sony would exceed the Sigma's sharpness. I think I will keep the Sigma as my main portrait telephoto lens and I will use the Sony as a low light lens or a video lens because of its OSS.

In what ways have you found the Sony better than the Sigma? Want to post a sample picture?

I'm also interested in this, as I'm considering both. I prefer the Sigma focal length, and sharpness does seem higher per reviews. OSS is a feature, as are subjective considerations like bokeh and contrast. The Sigma doesn't do AF tracking, which is disappointing. No indications from Sigma that firmware will be added either.
