ownership:I own this lens
compared to:A lot of Sony A and Minolta lenses as well as Viltrox 85mm 1.8 AF, Samyang 35mm 2.8, TTartisan 11mm 2.8 and Samyang 14mm 2.8 UPC, Sony 28-70mm, Sony 90mm 2.8 macro, Sony 55mm 1.8, Samyang 24mm 1.8, Minolta AF 500mm f8.
price paid:799
positive:Good range, Versatile lens, Relatively light lens. Sharp images. The most important part is that is optically stabilised lens. It is G lens and even it has no G Master is one that deserved it.
negative:F4 only, expensive, can not reach the aperture of prime lenses
comment:Nice and versatile lens to have with Original A7 or A7RII. If you have the newer Sony cameras out there it will be fine. The best travel lens out there. As it is constant aperture and image stabilised it is pleasure to use for video.
