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: Buy this over the Sigma 19mm. I've also written a review about that lens. I'm an armature photographer, and while my composition skills are becoming more proficient I still like to focus on sharpness. To me that is important (although some may argue otherwise). Either way, I love this pancake. Recently I've been shooting a little more wide angle for candids shots. This lens fits the bill!
Summary: I bought this 20 mm f2.8 Sony lens to use on the Sony A6000. It is a good solid lens and gives sharp focused images. Out of habit, I shot most of my images on Av, so I like having this slightly faster lens. Also, it is very good for video. The 20mm is small and light, and that is good for a small light camera like the A6000. I'm going to use the 20 mm lens as my primary lens when I travel.
Excerpt: I am a new photographer. I only had the Nex-7 and this lens since since November 2013. After shooting for the last six, I am finally learning just how good this lens can be.Best shots so far have been wide cityscape panoramas. I have also a few favorite up close photos inside a bar. I am definitely excited to bring this guy to Yellowstone and Arches National Park later this summer.Pro: It's considerably sharper than the 16mm pancake lens.Cons: I do wish it was a little...
