Re: NEX-5N with kit lens vs. Zeiss lens

I suppose it's a case of different horses for different courses. Personally, I wouldn't walk across the street if they were handing out 35mm 1.8 lenses for free. Why? Personally I find that focal length on an aps-c sensor completely uninspiring. I also wouldn't spend $1000 on many lenses but as someone else pointed out - its down to the lens characteristics. The lens formula, lens coatings, lens construction, and how the lens handles color, sharpness, contrast, and bokeh along with the focal length that makes all the difference.

For this photographer, the Zeiss is totally worth the expense.
