Re: Which NEX lenses have the "WOW" factor?

IMO, the native NEX lenses that have wow'ed me the most with their picture rendition qualities (subjective, obviously) are the Sony SEL50F18 and Sigma 30mm EX DN.  I'll leave others to talk about those.

The SEL50F18, SEL35F18, and SEL1018 have wow'ed me with their stabilization.  The two primes in the course of very-low-light photography (won't repeat more posts), and the UWA zoom in the course of interior photography.

One trick I have up my sleeve that none of my 20-or-so local shooting cohorts (who mostly use Canikon gear) have managed is the camera-on-a-stick trick, in which I hand-hold my camera at the end of my tripod, sometimes fully-extended over the top of my head (a helper triggers the shot with an IR remote).

Camera-on-a-stick full-extension overhead (12' high perspective).
