when i was shooting with a sony a6000, the gem of my kit was the sony 50mm 1.8 OS. it was very light, very sharp and the stabilization was very good. i got what i believe are some of my best photos ever with this lens. then i moved back to canon. i have shaky hands due to wrist issues, so i can't shoot sharp hand-held at 1/50th even with a light 50mm. my shots last night were very disappointing, and i knew that was the problem as i've had it with other cameras. and unlike sony, neither canon nor any of the third-party lens companies make a fast stabilized prime at $300 or less, which is disappointing as i'm going to have to sell some stuff to buy a canon mount prime. the lenses i'm looking at are the canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM and two tamrons - the 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and the SP 45mm F1.8 Di VC USD. the tamron 35 is very highly rated and lighter than the tamron 45, and lighter is pretty important to me. the canon 35 is lighter than either, so i guess that's the direction i'm going... maybe i can sell a bass to buy one. unless someone here knows of a stabilized autofocus lens that falls between 35mm and 50mm (give or take) that's also lightweight and sharp. anyone?
