compared to:50 1,7
50 1,4
price paid:300€ (from a friend)
positive:Color and sharpness
negative:A bit heavy,
Autofocus slow
Prone to flare
comment:With new A850 software it focus better.

In my opinion with FF it is one of the best lens available, no need to buy CZ 24-70, the only real drawback is the weight ( When I need to be light I use 50 1,4 )
