Summary: Even though this lens is pretty old it works amazingly with my Sony A65 SLR. If you are looking take portraits of people I recommend this lens 100% also wasn't crazy expensive like other 50mm that Sony made.
Summary: My boyfriend uses this one and I wanted one. Works very well for a low light lens and for doing weddings. For the $80 price (used) including two day shipping it's a steal. We use it with Sony a33/a55/a57.
Summary: I was a little skeptical about purchasing this lens. The price was too good to be true and it was also a used product. I am so happy I went ahead and bought this lens! It's a small lens but gets the job done and produces some pretty dope pictures!
Summary: I found a used version of this lens for under $60 and I couldn't be happier. It is a very well made, durable lens, and takes very sharp pictures. You will never find a better lens for under $100. The focal length is good for most portrait shots and the bokeh is excellent. One gripe I have is the AF, it sometimes hunts for a bit before it can lock on and it is pretty loud. If money wasn't a consideration I would go for a new Sony 1.4 or 1.8 prime.
Summary: I needed something other than the kit lens that came with my Sony A57 so I looked around on line to see what people were buying. I needed shallow DOF and low light, so this lens fit the bill. The lens is small and light, and fit my needs perfectly. As you guys know, once you buy one new lens and realize how much better your photos are, you start looking for more. If you need a low light A mount lens for your Sony, this is the one.
Summary: I have received the lens in a well protected package, i'm using it for my Sony a58 DSLT , the focus is a bit tricky with this lens but the sharpness is great, depth of field is also great with this lens with great low light performance I recommend it as a first lens to upgrade after the kit lens for Sony users
Summary: Excelent lens work in my APS-C size sensors cameras work good, nice quality, nice sharp, and excelent bokeh, but in Sony FF it has poor quality. IT works excelent in my A700, my A57, my A65 and my A77 !!
