Summary: This is not an easy lens to love, definitely not like the SEL 35mm f1.8, which was love at first sight. Of all my SONY lenses, this is the most difficult to focus, even with color peaking and DMF focus setting. Lacking OSS, it's also not very forgiving at lower shutter speeds and begs to be mounted.
Summary: Not a fan. The macro focal range is really limited, which means it's really only good for close, static macro items. I already own the 35MM F1.8 prime, so I don't need this focal length for anything else. Although it's several fold more expensive, I'm waiting for the FE 90 macro coming out in July.
