Perfect walk around prime

Summary: This lens has not left my Sony A7 since I received it. Previously I was switching between the Sony FE 35f2.8 and a Canon fd 50f1.4. It's as small as the 35, as fast as the 50, and the focal length is a perfect compromise between the two.
Summary: Beautiful imge maker... lovely lens. Use it on my A7R as my main lens. Its so tiny.. and the image quality is good. It aint sharp as the 35 f2.8 from zeiss.. but i dont think just sharpness makes good images... good for knives though ;)
Summary: This is an amazing lens. I like it almost the same as a summicron-c which imo is actually better than the summicron 35mm/f2 v4 at least. i know heresy. I bought mine used with a hood etc in excellent shape but unfortunately the focus binds which is a real pain.
Summary: After lengthy research and comparison, I decided to purchase this lens and pair it with my A7II. You'll need an adopter for e mount cameras. Took it on my trip to Tokyo and it didn't disappoint. Love the results.
Summary: Excellent little lens. Feels very well constructed and the results with my Sony ILCE-7 (A7)are looking pretty amazing. The smallest focus distance is 0.7, with the new helicoid adapters it's suppose to go to a smaller distance of 0.2.
Summary: This is one of the best lens for the price! Been using it with my Sony A7R and the Fotodiox Leica M mount adapter! Sharp images at F1.4, no vignetting at all whatsoever! 40mm gives a little more focal length so when shooting full body portraits it doesn't give a weird wide angle/fisheye effect like...
Summary: THE SPECS: The solid metal build is nice. It's beautiful to look at. There is an impression of quality that comes from the lens' weight in your hands. The clickity clack of the aperture ring is pleasing. The focus ring is buttery smooth. An all around beautifully designed lens.
