Using an APS-C NEX, which one of these two lenses would you buy, if you could only have one?

If it makes an impact on your decision, pretend the other lenses you already own are the SEL20 pancake, SEL24Z and SEL35.

Thanks in advance!

Since you already have two lenses that are excellent in low light and can both give you shallow DOF, I would take that out of the equation. Also, neither the 50 nor the 60 are likely to get much use indoors. Given decent outdoor light, I would go with the Sigma. You will have faster shutter speeds available in daylight making lack of image stabilization close to a non-factor.
