Plastic, Cheap. Never again.

Jessi, B&H Photo
21 July 2012
  • Excerpt: First off, I was very excited when I purchased this lens. My photography instructor advised me against buying this, but I did not listen. I did get some really cool shots with it. However, the auto focus was really horrible.
  • Cons: Breakable and cheap, Cannot focus, Difficult to Clean, Poorly made, Slow Focus, Weak Casing

Get what you pay

GmanMI, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I thought a fast prime lens for [$] was a great deal, but I am disappointed. Poor build quality, images not sharp. Worst thing is that the plastic mount is bad, my A-65 consistently did not recognize the lens. I am returning the lens.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Tough To Attach, Weak Casing

ITS OK LENS FOR THE MONEY

Seva chiem, Sony
5 October 2010
  • Summary: This lens is ok, but a bit of a money waste, its really useless with the set zoom of 50mm, its not close enough in some cases and its too close in other cases.. if it had atleast a zoom of 18-50mm with f/1.8 then it would be well worth the money.
  • Pros: its nice that its a 1.8..
  • Cons: 50mm set is not great, and 1.8 is not low enough

Unreliable

  • Summary: I dont like the tightness of the lens - suppose that is what you get - but more than that it has started to play up, with the camera not recognizing it quite often. When I compare it with the 35mm Sony SAM it is like night and day. The 35 is never off my camera.

Mangelhafter Autofokus

Lucas Weigl, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich hatte dieses Objektiv bestellt, um es an einer Sony A58 hauptsächlich für Portraitaufnahmen zu verwenden. Mir war klar, dass die Verarbeitung bei diesem Preis nicht sehr hochwertig ist, doch meine Erwartung wurde sogar untertroffen. Es wirkte sehr klapprig.

  • Summary: Habe mir das Objektiv Mitte 2012 gekauft, an einer Alpha 580 und an einer Alpha 200 betrieben und war bis gestern mehr als zufrieden ... gestochen scharfe Bilder auch im Dämmerlicht ... unglaublich schöne Farbtiefe ... super schneller Autofokus ...

Tolle Bildqualität, schlechter Fokusring

Böhm Wolfgang, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: Vorweg: Tolle Bildqualität ' um den Preis wirklich unschlagbar. Die perfekte Linse für jeden, der gerne Menschen fotografiert, auch am Abend und in schlecht beleuchteten Räumen. Ich nutze sie sehr gerne für Street Life Shots. Leider hat sie ein großes Manko: Der Fokusring.
