positive:Very sharp from f2.8 across the frame, center sharp at f2.
Nice colors.
Fast AF. (This lens opens upp to f2 when focusing on my a7RII with FW 3.20)
Cheap and great performance compared to other Sony lenses.
Great flare control.
Small and nice all over.
negative:Pronounced barrel distortion uncorrected.
comment:Bought it for landscape and movie-shooting.
Live view on the a7RII shows the corrected image so very nice when aligning against buildings etc.
