Sharp, small, fast

Mtnr, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Yeah, it's $1k. Yeah, it's "only" f/1.8. But guess what? This is the sharpest 50ish mm lens with autofocus: IN THE WORLD. Small price to pay, don't you think? I use it on an A7R II, and this lens combined with the f/1.8 aperture allow me take hand-held photos in extremely low light.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp, Strong Construction

The quality is fantastic and the lens can be used in most situations. A must have complement to yur investment into the rii.

Not Only Sharp...

Love National Parks, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I had been using the Sony/Zeiss 16-40 f/4 to take pictures of my grandson for the past year, mostly because of the convenience. I had the 55 f/1.8 and used it primarily for landscape work because it is so sharp. But shooting portraits with this lens on my a6000 was a revelation!
