With 120+ reviews already here I got nothing else to add.
It's a sharp lens throughout all focal length and aperture, however, more CA were spotted on the first generation compared to the II and the latest GM.
I'm using this lens on a6000 with LA-EA4. The AF was acceptable but I won't call it fast, slower comparing to any E-mount lens, even the E55210 kit lens.
In a simple conclusion, highly recommend for tight budget photographers. But if you got enough money, go for the II ver or 140GM/260G on E mount!
