    Has the Nex 6 when using the Sony 35 mm 1.8 Sel a faster focus than with the Sigma 30 mm 2.8 Sel in low light.

    I had the Sigma and never used partly due to the unusable AF in low light. I use my SLE35 in dim light all the time. It hunts quite a bit and misses at times, but I still find it WAY better than the Sigma. It's also much more lovable due to the fast aperture.

    Many thanks for you replies. The sigma is sharp really sharp but in low light I curse him sometimes. Therefore I consider the Sony 35 mm 1.8 to buy.

    Franck the SEL is a totally different animal due to being both longer and brighter, which gives it plenty of background blurring ability which the Sigma, for me use, totally lacked. AF is icing in the cake. The SEL is not as sharp (and not as sharp as my PEN F 38 either) but surprisingly for a modern lens it does have character. I'm very fond of mine.

    The sigma "pumps" under AF-C, but not under AF-S and when pointing the AF area to a contrasty part of the subject, as one would do with manual focus.
