ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony 28mm F2.0
price paid:120 EUR
positive:Cheap, sharp, macro (although 1:2), nice colors, wheather sealing and as a 35mm very usable. The 67mm thread saves me buying new filters.
negative:Especially when the lens has to focus on subjects which are further apart, the AF is rather slow, but accurate. AF-C is faster than AF-S.
comment:Build quality: not metal, lightweight, (maybe a too) tight fit on the camera, feels nice. I think the build quality is reasonable.

Bought this new in box for EUR 120. It would be perfect a perfect allrounder if AF would be a faster.
