Hi.

Lenses SEL24f18 and SEL35F18

I am trying to get some equipment for weddings video.

So here is the deal.

First of all I need a lens to be good in dark and inside work.

24 and 35 is kinda big difference if You shoot in small room.

But SEL24F18 doesn't have OSS...

But most of the time i will use it with Steadicam wieldy + dual arm + vest/Tripod/Slider

Used 1 SEL24F18 i found for only 500 euros.

New 1 SEL35F18 cost around 400 euros.

The thing is. Will it be a big difference With OSS or w/o OSS for me with Steadicam?

PS: I have no experience with Steadicam yet. Ordered Steadicam from China and it will arrive only after 10 days. But i don't want to loss a chance to buy good used ziess lens.

Using lens stabilization on Steadicam is not recommended since the Steadicam should take care of all vibrations. So you should be good with a non OSS lens.

Ps: yes change your name to your full name.
