sony's wide angle 28 mm lens for good

liniecas, Ebay
3 September 2012
  • Summary: With all respect to bigger brothers of SAL F28 /F/2.8 ,- this eye has undoubltly the best money/q rate in my opinion. lightweight, laconic, strong character inborn from SONY, - thats it-28/F/28. A little bit wider angle expecting, but really without noticeable distortions,- thats what i needed when bought this lens for my old A100 from SONY's ALPHA serie.

Semi-wide angle, large aperature, good build quality for a great price!

  • Summary: The Sony 28mm f2.8 is hands down the best "walk around" lens for beginner photographers using Sony Alpha cameras. The kit lens is a piece of junk so please, dish out around $200 and get this prime. The wide angle is great for landscapes, portraits, or just about any occasion. The lens is relatively fast allowing indoor pictures without flash and catching moving subjects. The build quality comes from the previous Minolta line and is top-notch.

Compact. Compact. and Compact

Jaden P, Amazon

  • Summary: I believe this lens has discontinued for now. I just purchased this lens despite of many negative reviews from photozone or dpreview. The reason is this lens is super compact. I need a everyday lens for my A55. Even 28mm on APC-S body is 42mm lens. That is my favorite focal length always. This is not good for wide very good for standard lens(especially on crop bodies) hidden hood is another interesting idea since minolta.

  • Summary: I WAY prefer this to the 50mm 1.8 and I keep this on my camera pretty much all the time. It's my favorite, my "home" lens, my go-to and I have it on all the time. I always use it. It's always on my camera. I love it!

Sony SAL - 28F28

Roxana H. McRoberts, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: I am not very happy with this product. I wanted a wide angle lens to create a powerful foreground effect on landscape photos but this lens is not powerful enough to do that. I guess I need a 16F28 or less??

Awesome lens

  • Summary: The 28mm lens on my A500 is a good walking around lens. I like primes because of the clarity and it's actually easier not futzing around with zooming.

Excellent lens with an excellent price

Diego Raigoza Nuñez, Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: Disregard all the negative reviews youve read about this lens, the Sony SAL 28F28 its a GREAT lens on its own. The lens is small, light and discrete, with a hidden hood built in it, may not be a big hood, but its better than nothing. Most people and websites compare this lens with far more expensive wide angle lenses, making it a toxic mess to stay away from. SO NOT TRUE.

  • Summary: Sharp, excellent color. All around lovely lens. Simple design. Light weight. Good price on sale. I like the hidden lens hood in it. There is not a whole lot more you can say about such a simple, low cost prime lens.
