comment:This lens works really nice on my Sony a7iii with the LA-EA3 adapter. It focuses fast even in low light and the image quality is amazingly good specially up to about 85mm focal length. Beyond that, stopping down to f8 or f11 provides surprisingly good image quality! If you are looking for a small, versatile, wide range travel lens for a Sony E mount mirrorless camera, I highly recommend it.
