negative:- expensive
comment:If you are looking for a good wide-angle lens for E mount, Sony FE 1.4/24 GM is currently probably the best option available. Apart from the high price, it is hard to find any flaws. Of course, the fixed focal length of 24 mm does not suit for every situation, but when it is suitable, it works very well.

compared to:Minolta AF 2,8/24 mm, Sony E 1,8/24 mm ZA
price paid:1.549,- €
positive:Sharpness from f1,4, bokeh, weather sealing, handling, build and weight, nearly silent internal focusing, 11 aperture blades, fokus hold button and AF/MF-switch. In contrast to Zeiss Sony delivers a matching bag. And the best thing about this lens is the manual aperture ring!
negative:No OSS, due to the image stabilization of the camera(s) no disadvantage!
comment:This Lens convinces with an outstanding sharpness performance already from full aperture and a great bokeh! Despite aperture 1.4, the lens is relatively light (eff. 490g with filter) and easy to handle. Produces beautiful sun stars! Weather Sealing and the nearly silent focusing process underline the outstanding performance of this lens. Highly recommended!

Update: At the A7 III this lens wins again clearly in resolution and contrast. Therefore, I will use it in the future only on a FF sensor. One of the best lenses I've ever used!
