Great Sony lens for the price!

This is a great lightwieght lens that renders sharp images throughout its range and it produces a nice creamy bokeh. I would have liked to see a more solid metal mount on this lens, as I change out lenses often. You can't beat this lens for the money!

best value out there

By

for anyone looking to add a nice portrait lens to their collection, this is the lens you want...look at the graphs, look at the online reviews, then look with your own eyes...shooting into the light cropped in at 100%...you will get a little magenta CA that's easily taken care of in post...and the AF tends to hunt in low light situations, the lightweight feature makes it great if you're doing pet or children where capturing a moving subject is part of it...i really think you'll love this lens if you're looking for sharp images without having to take out a second to get them

Nice and simple!

By

Considering the optical performance and the price, I could not think of a CON. This is an amazing lens! It covers the FF sensors, but it is the same size as Sony's own 35/1.8 DT lens. Lightweight, compact, and excellent picture quality. I am willing to forgive the plastic construction for all of the positive aspects. The plastic mount might not be durable to withstand a drop or a hard knock, but who handles their gear that way anyhow?

Love it

By

I've only had this lens a short time, but I've used it indoors, outdoors, and for sports photography (indoors at basketball games). In all cases, it's focused quickly and delivered sharp, clear images. What more can you really ask for?

Great lens for portraits!

By

Excellent lens for doing photos of persons (and pets). Nice blur on the background, keeps you reasonable distance from the subject so they don't feel crowded. Smooth and quick auto focus, hand focus is a tad dragging, but this makes it stay put and doesn't accidentally move on you.

Excellent optic at a great price!

By

This is an excellent lens at a great price. Sharp even wide open, really sharpens up when stopped down a stop or two. Very light - a carry anywhere lens. Buy one, you'll use it a lot.
