compared to:Viltrox 23mm f/1.6
Sony 16-55mm f/2.8 at 24mm
price paid:rental
positive:Small, light weight, quiet and accurate autofocus
negative:f/3.5 max aperture
comment:This is a good lens, but image quality is not better than other primes, or even a high quality zoom, that have a larger max aperture. I could only see buying this lens if 24mm is your walk-around focal length and you value its small size and light weight.
