|comment:||It’s very sharp, comparable to Carl Zeiss and Sony G. You can shoot it wide open and still get pretty sharp shots with it. It’s sharper than the Minolta 50 1.7 (that saying something). I think when the Sony engineers designed this lens, they decided to focus on image resolution and nothing else. |
I really like this lens and use it all the time, but it definitely has some issues. For example, the build quality is terrible. It probably wouldn't last even a short fall. Also the autofocus leaves some to be desired. I mean the autofocus isn't bad by any means but it’s definitely not great.
What I really like about this lens is the sharpness, color, and price. Even though there are some flaws, this is still a good lens and I would highly recommend it for an APSC user.
