| p.1 #1 · Sending my Sony 35mm OSS back |
50mm is my favorite FOV. I got the Sony 35mm OSS for my NEX-5N as a potential replacement for my Panasonic 25mm that I use on my OM-D, primarily for the weight savings (5N+35mm = 1lb, OMD+25mm = 1lb 6oz - doesn't seem significant but I carry multiple bodies+lenses for hikes).
I really wanted to like the Sony but its acuity is just lacking, not just wide-open but also stopped down, particularly when compared to the Pany. The OSS worked well, about equal to the IBIS on the OM-D with the Pany. I'm normally not super particular on acuity but I do have minimum thresholds and the Sony fell short.
I'd be interested in hearing others' opinions on this lens.
