positive:Light , bright and tight. Sharp, colourful and contrasty. Very very good value. Well made.
negative:Flare and fringing and distortion issues if I am being mean, but at this price you really cannot complain.
comment:Great lens at a great price and a great investment. Use it on all NEX and a6000 derivatives as well as A7 series. I recommended it whole heartedly as a general walk around, a wide angle and a street lens.
