But the sigma primes lack OSS. If you want to use sigma primes you probably pair them with a6500 so you miss a6400 superior AF capabilities. If you want OSS primes and a6400 you have to buy the ones from Sony which are F1.8 :/

Do you really miss stabilization at that short of focal length? I don't have the steadiest of hands, but I've not had shake issues with my a6400 when using the Sigma 30/1.4. I've even gone down to 1/40 for shutter speed and been fine (as long as I'm willing to bump iso up to 6400 for low light).

maybe I should give it a try... what do you use for your a6400 & Sigma combo?

Is it ok if I'll put my two cents? I have no issues or close no 0 motion blur with my a6400 + Sigma trio. My Auto ISO shutter speed is set to "Fast" which sets it to 1/100 with 30/1.4, and ISO up to 1600 is enough for me for like 99% of cases. But I had no real issues with "Normal" option and 1/50. I just wanted some safe space, especially with 16/1.4, where "normal" shutter speed is 1/30, which is too long and causes motion blur by objects moving and pretty much ok at 1/60 with "Fast".

I use my setup for travel, event photo, portraits, video (with a gimbal) with tracking AF and very happy with it.
