Sharp, Very sleek design, and excellent build quality!

Summary: As of right now, this is my favorite walk around lens on my A6000. I mainly purchased this lens because I bought the body-only, and thought this would be a great lens to have. I was right, and find myself using it a lot of the time. It truly looks sleek on my camera and without the lens hood on, it becomes very compact. I would imagine on an NEX 5t or a5100 it would make the camera very pocketable.
Summary: Fast lens in my preferred focal length. My main subject is my kids, so I needed something fast and wide to capture them. This lens fits the bill. It's not as sharp as Canon L glass (what I am used to), but it is good enough to keep me happy with my A6000 purchase.
Summary: This Sony pancake wide angle lens is a outright miracle. OK, images are a bit soft around the edges, and the center of the image is sharpest when it's stopped down somewhat (to f/8, for example) -- but considering the price and the size and weight, this lens is truly wonderful. 5+ stars.
Summary: Fantastic lens for Sony NEX series. Pancake, so super slim. F/2.8 isn't the fastest lens, but for a Pancake, just about right. Wish Sony made a 35mm equivalent, rather than this 30mm equivalent, as to me, 35mm is still the perfect walk around. I shoot with an A7 (full frame) and an NEX-5 (APS-C), and the NEX-5 plus this lens is pocketable, and way faster than the kit zoom.
Summary: This lens now lives on my camera. I bought it to use with the NEX - 3N, and I haven't taken it off since I got it. We have a newborn and it is important to be able to capture pictures quickly, and this lens allows me control to tackle low light and not have to blind or startle my child with a flash!
