The SEL 35/1.8 is here. At first (in good daylight) the AF responsiveness took me by surprise !! The lens is smallish (at least it isn't grossly disproportionate like most other E lenses), glossy black and looks sleek. It's silent and pretty fast, and optically, darn good. The only question is : is it relevant over the PEN 38/1.8 I love so much ? The PEN is certainly as good optically, maybe a slip hair sharper and with loads more character. The SEL seems to have smoother OOF areas. I need to play with it tonight in dim light to see if the AF remains usable and an asset, or if I'm still faster with the PEN and Peaking. In all events, it's an E lens I think I could love. Pictures in a bit.
