Re: SEL20 vs SEL35 Sharpness

I really want the SEL20 for the compact size.  I currently have the SEL35 and would like to sell it to replace it with the SEL20 but I am concerned that it is not sharp enough to justify the replacement.  Can anyone comment to the sharpness of the SEL20?

I can only afford to have one of these lenses but the size difference is huge for me.  I want the smaller lens but only if it is sharp enough...I am using my NEX6 for p&s type of stuff, nothing major.


If you have to keep one I would suggest the sel20f28. It has been more useful for me because of the wider angle. F2.8 is bright enough for me indoors too. I stopped shooting my sel35f18 at f1.8 because I was tired of missing focus on one eye when my son is looking from an angle. I just get more keepers at f2.8.

I also have the sel50f18 which I still shoot it at f1.8.
