Summary: Awesome seller. I requested this seller to markdown the price which shows on the box so that it can enter into my coutnry. My country customs won't allow anything more than 200$ inside. About the product, It's an awesome lens for someone who want's to do some serious photography. It's wide aperture allows immense amount of light and 50mm on Alpha Nex is equivalent to 75mm. This is amazing for portrait photos.
Summary: This is a great prime lens for the Sony a6000. It is not too heavy, though it is much larger than the 16-50 kit lens that comes with the camera. This lens is quite fast at f/1.8 and produces a beautiful bokeh effect.
Summary: This lens gets very positive reviews and deservedly so: it may be the very best Sony e-mount lens for the money. For a long time I have used zoom lenses, my current favorite being the Sony Zeiss 16-70mm lens. When I received my Sony 50mm prime lens, I tested it in comparison with my Zeiss zoom set at 50mm. The Zeiss costs four times what the Sony 50mm prime costs, but in my tests the Sony 50mm prime was superior: sharper, crisper, better CA control, overall better IQ.
Summary: Diaphragm blades misaligned. Aperture circle is misshaped and not symmetrical. Same problem on 2 out of 2 units to varying degrees. Made in China with poor quality control it seems. Also same problem on 3 out of 3 of the E 35 f/1.8 and even on 4 out of 4 units of the $1000 FE 55 f/1.8 Zeiss. If you have this lens, check your diaphragm at small aperture and see if you notice a blade or two misaligned. Would be great to hear comments from others on this.
