compared to:Sony E50/1.8 OSS, Zeiss 24/1.8, Sony E55-210 OSS
price paid:€100 used
positive:Everything but the AF
negative:AF-C limited to central spot
comment:This lens is an absolute bargain for the price, small, light and incredibly sharp.
It is the only lens I tried that pairs with Zony 24/1.8 in terms of sharpness and flare resistance.
As of maximum aperture, I don't see it to dark for good background separation in portraiture.
The only limitation is the AF system, very reliable in AFS on A6000, but limited to the central spot in AFC
