  • Summary: Couldn't be happier! I was looking at wide angle lenses and got stuck between 2 sony lenses (one of which was a carl zeiss. Im too lazy to look them up :P). So I went to my dealer who only had this lens in the wide- angle section, and i'm glad i chose it.

Great Lens for Many Uses

thejumbo, Sony
22 March 2012
  • Summary: I use this lens a lot, mostly for real estate/home interior shots. I purchased it specifically to get some great shots of a home theater that we submitted for an award, and have used it in nearly every home installation that we have done since.
  • Pros: Great color, Decent speed, Good optics, AMAZING width in shots, Lightweight
  • Cons: A touch slow in low light, size of barrel makes flash shots hard

Love this wide angle lens!

  • Excerpt: Love this lens. Works great on sweeping landscapes and does surprisingly beautiful macro work too! Maybe something I'm doing but I've had some difficulties with shadows in my photos that appear to be from the lens itself.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Watch for lens shadow
