Hey Everyone,

The time has come for me to sell/trade in my Zeiss 50 for something wider for inside shots. Just had my third baby this year and holiday photos and birthdays can be rough inside, being as the 50 is the lens with the least reach that I own. I have a 24-105, but of course I would like to open it up more inside.

any suggestions? I was thinking 35 is the sweet spot.

I switched from ZA55 to FE35 and never looked back. Also changed my long time setup FE28+ZA55 to SY18+FE35+FE85.

FE35 lives 90% on the camera, and its close focus is also nice to feature have which was lacking with ZA55. Also, I find 35mm FOV is a lot better to work with indoors than the 55. You can close in to fill the frame for tighter shot and step back to get "more" in the frame.

I think that is the route I am leaning. Great range. Ultimately when the kids get older I will get something in the 2-300 range for sports.
