Excerpt: I haven't had anything to complain about with this lens. I bought it as a walk around lens. It's lightweight and quiet. It takes fantastic images. I used it at my 8year old's birthday and was able to compose a wonderful story set for her.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I bought the Sony a6000 with the kit lens and this was the first lens I purchased. It's a lot sharper than the kit lens and the max aperture of f/1.8 makes a huge difference in low light shots.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low Light, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was looking for a walk around lens for my Alpha 6000 and, although there are some less expensive normal prime lenses out there, I chose the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS. Build, fit and finish are beautify. But most importantly, the photos are superb.
Excerpt: I was somewhat disappointed. I expect a 'prime' lens to be outstanding if I am going to give up the flexibility of a zoom lens, but it was not as sharp or contrasty on my Sony a6000 as the 24-85mm "kit" zoom on my Nikon D600 particularly on the edges. I returned it for the Sony Vario-Tessar 24-70mm.
Pros: Compact, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
This lens is great especially indoors where there's low light

Summary: This lens is great especially indoors where there's low light , like in a dim lighted restaurant. You donot need a flash indoors . I bought this lens specially for taking photos inside museums , churches, mosque, castles & palaces , when I travel abroad where flash pictures are prohibited.
If you are looking for a fast medium prime look no further: this is your lens.

Summary: This lens is both a marvel of modern engineering for its size and weight, and a tack sharp, fast "nifty 50" equivalent lens. The main criticism you'll read about this is that it is overpriced. I don't think that's the case.
