Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! for the past 3 months I had been on the tip of the iceberg deciding whether or not I wanted to purchase this glass. Once I saw it go on sale, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try it out! I have to admit I am impressed. I have been using a 18-200mm zoom lens for all my shots, becuase I thought it'd make a great all around lens. It is, but this lens completely blows image quality comparison out of the water. with the examples I have, I rarely ever see myself changing lens anytime soon. I've been using this lens with a bounce flash and takes the pictures to a new level. I have had no regrets with this purchase and I recommend it to anyone who take pictures of people mainly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens for the price This lens is exactly what you'd expect. It performs well, especially given the price. Images generally come out pretty well. Limited depth of field definitely adds a nice touch to many issues. The build quality is not the best, but as the cheapest lens in the Sony lineup, I think that's expected. Autofocus is generally accurate and is acceptably quick. The only thing that I would say is that the 50mm f/1.4 lens is a significant step up in build and image quality, especially at the larger apertures - so if you have the extra money to spend, I'd recommend the more expensive lens. Still, at the low price of $150, this is going to provide a very large step up in image quality from the kit zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New SAM lenses are really a step up!! This lens really is an exceptional lens! I bought it while it was on sale this past month and the 1st day I got it I used it for an event I had that evening as a primary lens. I certainly was thrilled by the crisp quality of this lens. For the price you would think it wasn't a good piece of glass but for the price, you're getting a powerful lens that's very crisp and precise. The wide aperture is wonderful for low light situations and certainly is a lens you should have in your bag!! This lens is a must and to have a couple of older lenses before Sony came out with the SAM motor lenses, I can see they've done their homework and produced lenses that are near Carl Zeiss quality and G lens quality!! Thanks Sony for listening to your consumers requests!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1.4 vs 1.8....Chose to keep the 1.8 Very impressed...for the money you can't lose. I wanted to compare the 1.4 vs the 1.8 because I couldn't I bought both...took shots with low light, also bokeh shots. I honestly didnt' see a difference...I attached some test shots...I returned the 1.4 without hesitation...and kept the 1.8. If you want better build qualtiy and maybe a little little bit faster shutter speed in lowlight..then go for the 1.4, but save money and get the 1.4 because its ALMOST the same minus the build quality and a few hardly noticable diff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!!!!! My lens arrived yesterday and immediately I started taking photos. My best subject was my dog, Seanluke. I love the speed and I prefer B&W, so I set my camera to ISO 100 and my photos came out fantastic!! I have the first A100 model and I had to adjust my settings, but thats fine. This lens has captured what I am looking for in a photo. Real time and softness in the background. It reminds me when I worked in the dark room. I miss film and this lens come just a close in a digital format. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good buy... BUT... I bought this lens because I really wanted a portrait lens with a wide aperture, and I was very excited to get it. But upon buying it, I've noticed that pictures I've taken where my subject is in direct sunlight or is backlit, are subjected to EXTREME color fringing. The lens is great, and the fringing is easily corrected in Lightroom, but it is just a big let down that my images are fringing so badly. The lens takes semi-sharp images, and is great for what it is, but that color fringing is just such a huge deterring factor for recommending it to anyone else. Overall, it's an awesome prime lens. It has the ability to produce really shallow depth of field and works great in low light conditions. On the flip side though, the images aren't as sharp as they should be and color fringing is far too noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, for a great price I’ve had this lens for about a year now and everything has been great so far, it allows you to take macros with amazing bokeh just as well razor sharp landscapes. The price is great, the only problem for me so far is been that the focus ring is a little small and to close to the edge of the lens and sometimes I get my finger onto the filter and then I have to clean it again, just be careful with that, specially with the Zeiss filters which are extremely hard to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and sharp I've been thinking of buying a prime lens for some time and decided to take the plunge. If you only own zoom lenses this lens will make you think about your photography it will make you get involved with your subject it will make you think about what you want it will stop you being lazy,it will make you bold .Its light it takes sharp images ,great depth of field ,great indoors in low light what more do you want from a lens .
