    What 35? The 35/1.8?

    These are great.

    Thanks Kevin, yes, the SEL 35mm. Wasn't sure I'd keep it as I have the Sigma 30mm, but the light gathering ability is very sweet in comparison, and it's nice to have a fastish AF lens...im so used to MF now I use it 90% of the time, even on the A57 :)

    Is it as sharp as the sigma? I just can't see justifying the price. I mostly shoot with a 50 1.4 but I could see being a little more intimate.

    I did a little comparison over at WN under LENSES, check it out. The Sig is a teeny bit sharper to my eye, but the bokeh of the Sony is much better. I mostly use a 50mm 1.4 also, but find the 30/35mm FOV more versatile, especially with the kids.

    The sharp areas seem pretty confined - did you add blur in post?

    Yes! In snapseed. I flip through the presets until I go 'ooh, I like that'.....pretty juvenile probably. :D

    Like it, but the transition between clear and fuzzy is too sudden.

    You know what? That's all that matters. Good on you for shooting (and processing) for your own pleasure. After all the pixel-peeping, and sharpness honing, and arguments about which lens has the best bokeh, just being able to click the shutter and look at the resulting image and go, yeah, I like that, is a great thing. You go, Girl! :2thumbs:

    Thanks David, I appreciate the kind words. I could do with learning more on a technical level, but the 'model' is my 12 year old daughter and I'm happy with the memories I'm creating :D

    juvenile nothing,
    what matters is the final photo that people look at, only jealous geeks would say any different , the end result is what we are all looking for

    Outstanding photos. Great light and I like the editing, apart from the fake blur.
