Re: Sony does offer a 35mm f/1.8 OSS Alpha E-mount Prime Lens

I was looking at some old reviews.
However, after much thinking, I am probably still better off with 50 1/8 as I hate being in people's faces with my camera and 35 is too close.

I ended up ordering SEL50f1.8 on Amazon, if it doesn't meet my expectations I will return it. So far, the shots from NEX are just a tad less sharp / contrasty than the shots from my T3i, but then I am using much faster glass on T3i.
