  • Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS SEL35F18

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Silent and fast focusing, PDAF supported, Pleasing colours and contrast, Stabilisation is reliable
    Focus ring is a bit tough to spin, Steep price

    I bought this lens as an additional for the kit power zoom, and it delivers image quality way above the kit one. Although price may be a bit steep, i think it is still a good buy with OSS and relatively fast (f/1.8) aperture. Focusing ring is a bit weird for me, as i have to exert a lot of power to spin the ring. Some people might like it, but it's not my cuppa. Stablisation works well especially in darker conditions, but do not be overly dependent on it. I heard Sigma has announced the 30mm f1.4 DN C and i think it is also worth a look at considering faster aperture at the absence of a stabliliser.
