Answer:
I have both. They are quite similar in character, actually (except for focal length obviously). The 35 is more evenly sharp across the frame, whereas the 50 emphasizes the center, but is sharper in the center than the 35. They're both very sharp by f/4, and have similar chromatic performance (notably the longitudinal a… see more I have both. They are quite similar in character, actually (except for focal length obviously). The 35 is more evenly sharp across the frame, whereas the 50 emphasizes the center, but is sharper in the center than the 35. They're both very sharp by f/4, and have similar chromatic performance (notably the longitudinal aberrations are very visible on both below f/4 on both). The 35 focuses a bit faster, especially in low light. I think the magnification at minimum focus is also very similar (.16x or so). The 35 is more compact. The 50 can blur backgrounds more, so it's better for that look, whereas the 35 must be focused somewhat closer to achieve the same background blur, so it's less useful if that's your thing. The hood on the 35 isn't as effective as that of the 50, but it's more compact. The focus rings are similar in feel. The 35 is a bit more prone to lens flare. Overall I prefer the 35 because it's a more versatile focal length, but they are both great lenses. I'd pick the 50 if I were mainly doing portraits, and the 35 if you want a walk around lens with great sharpness and low light ability. see less

Answer:
In full frame it would be about 75mm. I found it to be very sharp & good for portraits.

Answer:
It is a fast lens for sure. Great for poor lighting enviornments, but if course the cost is that it has a fixed focal length at 50mm so no ability to zoom in or out. It takes great portrait shots though. I would definitely recommend it!

Answer:
Yes...and no. The mount is the same, but the area covered will be cropped. Sony has just released 2 or 3 new Zeiss lens for the full frame format. I would recommend the new lenses.

Answer:
Yes, it does. It's an E Mount lens, which is what the NEX-5T accepts natively.
