good AF in normal light conditions (i didn't use it inside dark rooms yet).
good overall sharpness
very low weight
full frame
very affordable
49mm thread
doesn't feel cheap
there's a box included to keep the lenses clean at transport
firmware updates are possible (with the specific usb-adapter)
a handy lens-case is included
negative:only f2.8
tiny hood - not to say the first time it looks a bit weird.
no built in Stabilisation
don't loose the lens cap - it's very small 42mm)
less vulnerable than the 24mm for flare but still something too look out for.
comment:It's a tiny well made lens that's affordable - this one may be what you're looking for.
These lenses fit into your pocket - ideal companion on an a7.
Ideal for traveling/hiking and in-city-use.
I'm thinking of searching a better lens hood. It's too tiny to my taste and a better hood may be better to protect against flares.
I just got this lens - so i'll try to update this review (e.g. tests with the a6000)- these are first impressions.
flare is ok, but there is better available (more expensive 35mm)
compared to the 24mmf2.8 Samyang brother/sister-lens this one is overall sharper.
Distortion seems to be ok - lineair at least (i've got some extra tests to do).
