it's a full frame lens.
sharpness is ok - you have to stop down for the edges.
Flares may occur - it's not as bad as with the old manual focus-lenses, but not on par with comparable 24mm primes that are now sold by the competition.
Only f2.8 - and to get sharp corners you may need to stop down.
|comment:||It's a nice travel companion due to it's very low weight. |
The sharpness and colors are good enough for my use.
The build isn't bad at all - i didn't have a plastic feeling.
If you're looking for low-weight travel primes, this is very low-weight. The better alternatives run at minimum 2x the price. It's a compromise lens for photographers on a budget.
The sharpness is fine - the competition may be a little bit sharper - but the weight/Size of the lens is there.
I'm going to test it soon on the A6000 - and we'll add to the review. This is a first look at this lens - i'll update it soon. Also read other reviews... And try it out yourself.
flare control - first tests indicate that in normal use there are no problems - you have to be careful with direct light into the lens than it flares easier than the 35mm f2.8 Samyang.
distortion - the lens is not without distortion - in certain scenario's it'll be visible as a complex moustache-distortion - the distortion is rather small, but when correcting images taken from paintings high above the head (e.g. churches) it may become visible during perspective correction.
