ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony 18-55mm
price paid:200 USD refurb
positive:Impressive normal angle prime lens. Sharp, fast enough on a6000 sensor for sure, quick focusing also. Lightweight, compact. I have silver version on silver a6000 and it's very sexy. Excellent fit to e mount, feels very well built.
negative:none have shown up yet.
comment:I have all three Sigma Primes 19-30-60 and I love them. All have 46mm filter diameters so one CPol and one VND will be used on all three lenses. The rattle of the lens is mentioned as a neg, but it is not, it's designed so. Pana-Leica m43 do the same (??? cousins ???) I use with 10, 16 and 26 mm Nex Extension tubes for great macro.

I would highly recommend to all my friends.
