    SEL35F18 users - how are you liking the lens?

    I'm giving serious thought to adopting a single lens kit philosophy with my NEX-7. People that own the SEL35F18 - are you generally happy with the lens? I haven't seen much chatter here about it.

    Hi Ken
    This review might be helpful (just out):
    Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS (SEL-35F18) - Review / Lens Test Report

    I use this lens on a NEX-6 and am very pleased with it. Thanks to the fast aperture you get very interesting creative possibilities and it complements any of the standard zooms nicely.
    OSS works well and stopped down to f4 or f5,6 it's sharp all the way into the corners.
    For me it's well worth the money.

    Hi, Jost - I just saw that review a few minutes ago, it makes me feel a bit better about the lens. A few of the online reviews before this were rather lukewarm. Thanks for your comments!

    I simply love it. It has become the standard lens on my nex cameras...

    It's quite nice. It's definitely a step above the 18-55 in terms of color and general image quality. The OSS comes in handy. I don't use it much as I'm mostly a manual-focus guy. But I've been pleased with the results when I do.
