Re: Dude, it's quite simple in my opinion...

Forget about video without stabilization (OSS in this case). Anyone who shot video without OSS at least once will quickly learn and abandon the idea. So in my opinion it's very simple - get E35mm. It's still photo abilities are not as great as Zeiss Touit lenses, but the gap is small. However, gap in video is huge - on E35 video is perfectly watchable, while on Zeiss it will jitter and shake - eventually unusable/unwatchable. As a bonus you'll save $500 to put it for a new upcoming body (new NEX 7?) As an extra bonus - E35 is very compact compared to Zeiss lenses - a nice thing to keep NEX main strength - compactness. As an extra-extra bonus AF is fast in E35. Just my 0.02 cents.
