Excerpt: I'm using this lens on a BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It's giving me the shallow depth of field that I was looking for in a wide angle lens, but is limited in it's uses. I got what I paid for.
Excerpt: This lens was very sharp and easy to focus compared to the 16-50 kit lens for my Sony NEX5-T.The only drawback is it tends to show a lens flare when shooting a bright light like the sun or a bright moon.
Summary: I am a huge fan of the 28mm (This lens equals 28mm in 35mm format) lens and since I started focusing on Street Photography it is rare that I use anything else. Looking at the choices Sony offered there is not much to get excited about so I finally decided to try this lens out even though reviews...
Summary: I tried this lens in both 19mm and 30mm versions. Also tried the EX DN and DN ART versions. Both are good lenses. I prefer the look of the ART version. I found the 30mm a little to narrow for a walk-around lens... the 19mm was more versatile.
Summary: Beautiful lens with great quality but I never seem to use it. First of all it's an APS-C lens on a MFT mount so it is oversized. I also have never been a fan of so-called normal lenses since it rarely fits the way I see the scene.
Excerpt: The 19mm on a micro four thirds is about 38mm field of view in 35mm terms. Similar to the 35 lens I used on my Leica back in the film days. A great lens for most purposes. This lens focuses close, real close. Works fine and takes great images.
