Sony NEX SEL50F18 Versus SEL35F18

We have the likes of SEL50F18 and the SEL35F18, which by all measures are and will be good enough, heck, better than enough. And they are affordable by a much larger majority of users. 

Which one you would recommend SEL35F18 or SEL50F18?

++Very Sharp, even sharper than the SEL35F18
+Smooth bokeh
+Cheaper than the SEL35
-Bigger and heavier than the SEL35
-Slow AF esp in low light
-50mm is quite narrow and hard to use indoors with tight spaces.

++Very Fast AF
+Quite small and light w/c makes your overall gear more lighter.
+Black color = stealthy
+Works decently indoor even in tight spaces
-Very High contrast = CA or Purple Fringing @ F/1.8 (minimal @ F/2.2 and gone @ F/2.8 onwards)
-Expensive but acceptable. $300 vs $450. heck, it could even get more expensive due to demand.

IMO, Despite it's short comings, the SEL35F18 is easier to use and more versatile compare to the SEL50F18. The SEL50F18 ain't a bad lens and excellent in portrait and spy shots but if I'm in a situation where I can only buy 1 lens for my NEX, the SEL35F18 is my choice. As of now, I love my SEL35F18 but I'm not letting go of my SEL50F18 just yet.
