The F2.5 is sharp in center wide-open with fairly decent background rendering. The later 28mm F2 is much flatter field but not as sharp in the center with much busier backgrounds.

Just picked up the Sony 24 f1.4 for £460 from mpb. Cosmetically and optically perfect, but contacts not functioning. Will send straight through to Pencoed to hopefully get fixed (or replaced as within 5 years) for their flat fee and come in under £600. Bit of a gamble but fingers crossed!

UPDATE: Not a good deal - seems Sony repairs Pencoed have changed their repair price structure since I last used them. It used to be a flat fee for repairs (and replacement if they couldn't repair it and lens was under 5 years old) but now it's fully costed parts and labour. Lens itself was in perfect condition but no connection to camera, so thought repair could still be affordable. Thought at worst I could use it manually but the focus of these newer lenses is digital (i.e. no physical connection between focus ring and the lens elements), so couldn't even focus manually. Estimate came back as over £600 so returned lens to mpb for full refund.

Would do the same again though - he who dares Rodney, he who dares
