Sony a6000 lens choices

1 year 11 months ago #704323 by likestoo
After endless problems with dust getting in during lens changes and ruining photos I have developed a super quick lens change routine. Unfortunately recently I left the kit lens on its side during this and it rolled off my desk and onto the floor and now won't work.

It is quite pricey to buy separate so I was looking to see if there was a letter alternative. My researches seemed to suggest that if you discount zoom function (which I use on maybe 3-4% of photos) the Sony E 35mm F1.8 OSS would be the obvious one. I was about to buy it and then saw this review which compared it to the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN:

I actually already have this (as well as a Sony 4/16-105). It is brilliant for capturing an object about a metre from the viewer. But for a streetscape or a landscape its field of view is too cropped. So my question is I am in danger of buying the wrong lens?

Sigma's primes for the E-Mount are quite good, but they aren't stabilized.

Pickin's are slim for the E-Mount right now. Don't spend a lot. Something better might be just around the corner.
