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.

It is a great, light

  • 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.

A portable powerhouse for the a65 or a58

Sam, B&H Photo
5 August 2014
  • 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. Although I like sharp pictures in good light as much as anyone, I've been a little leery of prime lenses due to their...

Nice affordable prime lens

Glad I bought this lens

3 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I wondered why I was having trouble getting the sharpness I want out of the kit zoom for my Sony a65. This lens is much more sharp and better exposures. Just have to adjust to no zoom, but that's why cropping was invented...
