Very sharp, beatiful colours. With the maximun aperture, the bokeh are great. Excelent for portraits. Value for this amount of money is awesome.

I love this lens!

Siberian Khatru "Lord of the Hunt", Amazon

  • Summary: I have a Sony Alpha A55 which is my first foray into the DSLR world. I have always used point and shoot cameras before, owing to their low cost and my busy schedule precluding learning how to shoot photos with quality gear. Well, I have found the time and this lens has made a big difference in the quality of my photographs. I have learned the proper use of Aperture Priority shooting which I now use almost exclusively for still photographs.

Good quality from Sony...AGAIN

Adorama
8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Serious amatuer photographers on a budget will love this lens. Great photos are captured with its f/1.8 aperature. Great for cropped-sensor cameras, it takes stunning portraits, and its fixed focal length is a winner for those days when you need to carry light for your street photography outings. It boasts a super smooth (and quiet) autofocus. While it doesn't affect the performance of this lens whatsoever, it doesn't come with a lens hood.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fixed Focal Length, Great portraits, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Quiet Smooth Autofocus
  • Cons: No lens hood

Excellent Lens

RyanR, Sony

  • Summary: Probably one of the best bang-for-your-buck lenses out there. Its an incredibly versatile prime lens that takes very sharp images with the nice bokeh that everyone is looking for these days. This lens should be the first lens you buy after advancing from the kit lens that came with your camera. You will not be disappointed with this lens.

Sharpest lens in my bag

Bohemus, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this lens as a cheap prime option for portraits. It takes incredibly sharp images with my A58, huge improvement over the kit lens that came with my camera. Allows me to take indoor photos without the flash, which is a big help for me! For the price, this lens is an incredible value. Also, big thanks to Amazon on the shipping. Was quoted a delivery date of 2/14 and it arrived a day sooner! Bonus!

  • Summary: No fault of the distributor but the box for the filters was mis-marked and I received the wrong size. Not to worry the distributor got the correct filter sizes out to me in a timely manner with no questions asked. I recommend this company and would do business with them again.
