Tough lighting conditions. Auto white balance did its best!

Nothing really special, just watching the sunrise and trying the lens out.

You can see, the bokeh is just fine. Great combo for hiking, when you want both lightweight and high IQ.
One more, this one is wide open.
Just lovely greenery ENO
Question: Just wondering, as I deal with another wave of lens GAS, which is "better" on an APS-C E-mount camera, the Sony E 35mm f/1.8 or the Sony/Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8? I've heard and seen such good things about both.
Just guessing, I suppose I'd expect the E 35 to perhaps be a tad better in lower light due to the f-stop advantage, but the FE 35 to be sharper overall. In other words, is the FE 35 worth the US$300 premium on APS-C if you value low-light ability?
(Oh, who am I kidding... neither are within my busted budget at the moment. But it's always good to hear the experience of others.)
I don't own either, but tried them side by side on a NEX 6 in a local shop a couple of weeks ago.
I was surprised by how much better the E seemed over the Zeiss. Granted, it wasn't the best comparison, but enough of one to surprise me quite a bit! As a point of order, I went in to get my hands on the Zeiss for a very similar case of GAS (which has passed for the moment).

That is surprising! Maybe the FE lens just isn't a good match for the APS-C sensor. Every time I use it on the A7 I'm fairly blown away.
The FE on crop becomes a fairly full 50mm 2.8 equivalent with even deeper DOF. On FF it's a really great little lens.
Well, DxO says the 35mm f/2.8 is actually superior in resolution on the NEX-7 compared to the 35mm f/1.8.
Which is why NkedFatWhIteGuy's reaction to is so surprising to me. Of the Sony lenses that I've owned, it's by far the best performer. Of course, I've never had a chance to shoot with the 55 f1.8.
Yeah, I don't know. Maybe sample variation (either DxO has a weaker 35mm f/1.8 or NkedFatWhiteGuy used a weaker 35mm f/2.8)?
