Nice affordable prime lens

  • Excerpt: Great prime lens for the price, I mostly use it for street photography and low light conditions. It's a plastic casing which makes it light but it feels a little bit low quality.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Don't settle for just a zoom lens!

  • Summary: Most DSLR's come with a general purpose zoom lens. Though convenient, they do poorly in low light. This lens does much better in those situations. The 35mm focal length is wide enough for most general shooting. Though the focus mechanism is not fast enough for sports action, it's sufficient for normal shooting.

  • Summary: All good except ugly plastic body of course. Performance is amazing though and that's what you are buying here. Old M42 manual focus primes still have more unique and beautiful image quality.

  • Excerpt: I have a Sony a580 and have been shooting at a maximum f/3.5 for the past 2 years. Why haven't I purchased this lens sooner?!?!?! Gorgeous, sharp images with smooth, creamy bokeh. I am utterly in love with it and don't see it leaving my camera body any time soon!!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

35MM Magic

M.AGE, B&H Photo
14 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I could not be more pleased with the sharpness and quality of this lens- at a fraction of the cost for some of Sony's higher-end lenses, like Carl Zeiss. This lens, which I use with the Sony-SLT A77, will be a favorite for years to come. I love the look of the images I'm getting. It does a gorgeous job! The only "con" I would say is the mainly plastic body, but for the cost, handle it with care and it'll last a long time!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Cost-efficient, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
  • Cons: Plastic Body

Focusing issues with A33

Valentin, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: It takes great photos when it nails the focus but very often the focus was off even when the camera confirmed focus. I had to return it. I also have the 50mm 1.8 lens which works fine so it is not my camera. The focus issue was not only wide open, it was noticeable at f2.8, even f4. Maybe I got a dud, might give it another try in the future.
