Excerpt: I was looking for a light-weight fixed focal length lens that was the same as a typical 50mm on film cameras. I wanted this as an option to the zooms I have. And I didn't want to break the bank on another lens. This lens was just the one I was looking for.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Great lens, simple, lightweight, sharp and perfect for aps-c sensor. More practical than 50mm which I also own. I'll glue it on my camera, perfect for everyday use. I use it on my A58 and A77II.

Summary: Excellent value. My first copy had issues with de-centered focus, but the replacement is tack sharp. Durability seems to be okay, but I would be more comfortable if it had a metal lens mount (vs the plastic). Attached image was take at 1/500 and f2.2
Excerpt: Use this as a walk around lens on an A77II. Signifcantly sharper than my Tamron 28-75/2.8 at 35 mm. As most others have noted, the mount is plastic, but that hasn't been an issue as of yet. First copy had de-centered focus issues, but the replacement behaves exactly as expected.
Summary: This was my go to lens before I bought sal1650 for my A77. I have absolutely no problem with its performance. Pictures are sharp wide open, and sharpest at f/2.8-f/4. I compared this lens with sal1650 at 35mm f/2.8 aperture and they are practically identical in terms of sharpness.
Summary: Best lens I have ever owned to date! It is my first prime lens for my A57 camera and I'm upset I didn't purchase it sooner. Loving the aperture being so wide compared to my other lenses too. Thank you so much!
Summary: It is a great, light, fast little lens. It works quite well with my Sony a57 and it has taken some amazing photos with little distortion and great Bokeh. I haven't had any difficulty with lens flare and is quite sturdy despite its cheap and plastic feel.
