Do you have a selection of lenses (or a zoom lens) now?
Shoot a table-top test with different focal lengths, repositining the camera to get tye same view of the foreground object. Then look carefully at the photos to see for yourself.
If you’re one of those peopke where this doesn’t just scream at you, it’s good to develop your eye to seeing the perspective.
For example, my wife takes still-life photos of food, and I say “too close! Back up!” and had to teach her to use the numbers (e.g. don’t use a focal length shorter than 40), as she doesn’t “see” the perspective when framing the shot. Even if she can “see” it in the final picture on a full-size screen, it’s too late.
In particular, the background (table and room beyond) becomes a sweeping expanse that dominates the composition, or even looks unnatural.
The other day, my Mom showed draft/concept of product shots she wanted, and knew that they didn’t look good but didn’t know why. I explained “because you were too close.” The bottles looked fatter on top and thinner at the base, because the distance was different and that distance was significant compared to the individual distances.
A person’s face will look bad if you shoot from closer than you would normally view a face. Percepually, you actually need a longer lens to look best because you view a photo as if seeing someone on stage or otherwise at a distance, beyond a normal personal conversation distance. So portrait lenses are longer again than the “normal” lens below which it simply looks bad.
I have an Alpha 6000 as you do, and use it for social events including getting pictures taken with people at an event, parties and gatherings, etc.
I use the 35mm f/1.8 OSS prime lens.
In real real situations, I still have a bit of a chore getting far enough away to frame a shot. The pictures look good. The 50mm would be too long, making it difficult to back up enough.
On the other hand, for portraits (close up to show just the face) the flatter perspective of the 50mm would look better, all else being equal. But I think that’s not the primary use for an ultra-portable camera. (Note that the 35mm is a normal perspective and ok enough for such shots, and great for anything that shows more than just the head. You can avoid crowding in and shoot the head-only by cropping the result, as you hace 25 megapixels to start with!)
So unless you have something completely different in mind, get the 35mm. Also lookmat renting first if you are not sure.
