Great value!

  • Summary: I bought this lens for my Sony A65. I own the SAL 35 and 85mm lenses which are cheap lenses and I wanted one lens that was of higher quality. Given the 1.5 crop factor I figured I would push a little more money into this as my portrait lens. After getting it and manually focusing on points at 1.4 I was impressed with the files, sharp with good bokeh and nothing crazy at the corners.

Vewy Vewy Qwiet.... It seems to be very sharp, AF is quick and nearly silent unless it's racking from min-infinity.

  • Summary: Vewy Vewy Qwiet.... It seems to be very sharp, AF is quick and nearly silent unless it's racking from min-infinity. This is a solid build, fast lens, and a pretty good value used for $220!

It is a great lens

Or Os "oros", Amazon

  • Summary: I would strongly recommend it if you have a full frame camera like alpha 99. As you know 50mm you multiply with 1.6 for not full frame camera then your lens becomes 50 x 1.6 = 80mm - while on full frame 50mm remains as 50 mm. You need to keep a bit larger distance from the object. For Alpha 55 - like mine it is a good camera, but I would suggest you get a 24mm lens of sony.

Great lens

Insurrection, Amazon
2 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a very good lens, so light and compact very handy when I'm just going out for a walk or mall or when hanging out with friends and families. Build quality is great, not perfect but really really good. There is a slight noise when you focus but you'll basically hear it inside a quiet room, when you shoot outside you barely notice it. Even though I know that there is a newer version will come up the Zeiss 1.4 SSM I still bought this, why?

Awesome lens.

Thomas Greber "thkpic", Amazon

  • Summary: I just bought this lens off of here a few weeks ago and have to say I am exceptionally impressed with the sharpness, bokeh and overall optical quality this lens has. I've been using a 5 year old Alpha A100 for five years with the kit lens and thought the pictures I've been taking where good until I got my hands on this. I now get why people invest in quality optics and prefer lenses over powerful cameras if you must decide on one or the other.
