Summary: I'm not a super sophisticated photographer, but this lens takes sharp, clear photos on my older model Sony alpha camera. The wide aperture capability makes it an especially good choice in low light situations. Some of the best photos of my kids have been taken have been with this lens.
Excerpt: I didn't realize how much I would like a 50 mm lens until I bought one. I don't use it at its 1.4 aperture but everything else gives me a nice sharp picture. I use it on an A7 with the Sony adapter and it's great.
Summary: Coupled with the Sony A99, this lens takes spectacular pictures. Use this sense if you have kids and you won't be disappointed. The details it captures especially on close-ups are just amazing.
Summary: This is a very fun lens, great bokeh! Bought it used, although it didn't come in the original box, it was in perfect condition. Can't wait to get out and use it more. Very happy with the purchase!
