Re: Sony 35mm 1.8 vs 18-135mm for A65.

I have built my system around the Sony 16-50 f/2.8.  I really love this lens.  I have the 18-55 kit lens and always found 18mm not wide enough.  16mm (24mm equivalent) is a much better starting point in my opinion.  I recently added a 55-300 to the 16-50 but the 16-50 is really the cornerstone of my system.

Which ever body you decide on I think the 16-50 f/2.8 is an excellent lens that won't leave you wanting to upgrade in a few months.  My 16-50 has made my 50mm 1.7, 30mm 1.4 and 20mm 2.8 pretty much dust collectors.
