Excerpt: Great walk around lens. No, it's not a zoom so you do have to adjust your shooting position. The characteristics of the lens are easy to learn and take advantage. Some vignetting but photoshop will take care of that. Expensive, but you usually get what you pay for.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have been using it to do portraits of folks in public places. The images are great with this lens. It is non-invasive to use when approaching strangers and asking permission to photograph them.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have never owned a 35mm prime. I've always shot on a 24Lii or something wider. Ever since I bought the a7rii, I decided it was time. I definitely didn't want the zeiss 1.4 because that is just stupid big for an a7r. I then did some research between this lens and the loxia 35mm.
Excerpt: The Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 is terrific. After researching the 35mm f/1.8 and the 16-35mm f/4 options, I recommend this lens. It is half the price of the other two lenses and excellent for daylight and sufficient for low light photography with the Sony a7RII.
Best lens for your A7 if you actually shoot all day.

Excerpt: I don't understand why this lens has anything less than 5 stars from anyone. Yes, there is vignetting when shot wide open. No, there's no Image Stabilization. Yes, it's only f/2.8. SO WHAT? This lens is TINY and weighs almost nothing.
