Excellent Value

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: No need to spend several hundred dollars on a 'nifty fifty'. This is a great lens that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I should have bought it long ago. Light as a feather and takes great shots.

  • Excerpt: I am what you might call a semi-pro photographer, and when I'm not out taking pictures I'm reading camera and lens reviews, and I thought I'd wade into the discussion here.
