I purchased the lens kit with the a6000 and like the pictures that it is putting out but I am also interested in getting an good, affordable prime lens for taking portraits and pictures of a new baby and kind of every day quick snapshot use.

I know that the SEL35f18 is out there at about $450 but was wondering about any other options that might be better and are either slightly more expensive or slightly less expensive. I'm not looking to spend a fortune on a lens but I also know they are not cheap either.

The SEL50F18 would be bit less expensive with a focal length better suited for portraits, and it's a great lens.

It's perhaps a bit too long for the "quick snapshot use", but you could continue to use the kit lens for that or get the 30mm Sigma to go along with it - both of those together would be about the same price as the SEL35.
