comment:Very nice built lens. I would not buy it new. Too expensiv. But had luck on ebay.

Fits perfectly with my lineup
20/2.8 | 28/2.8 | 35/2.0 | 50/1.4

The sharpness is, like all primes, excellent. The APS-C adjusted value of 42mm makes it ideal or indoor foto shootings. I'ld whish Sony makes a D lens. A pitty it has not circular aperture.

I definitely can recommend it.
