positive:Very Sharp
Great in low light

Too nosiy for videos on A99
comment:Razor thin DOF but you would expect that with a 1.4 prime lens...What is in focus is sharp! Just got this gem and still playing! It was a great find! Thought the hood would prevent more lens flare since it isn't a super wide prime.
