Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpest lens I've ever used I was really amazed by the details of this little lens when I take the first photo.... I have used a99 (135 f1.8, 70-200, 35 1.4), a77 (16-50) and many other cameras and prime lenses before but this lens sharpness beats every other lenses I've used to date. This lens gives a very beautiful background blur and bokeh when use it properly. The built is very solid, feels like it will last longer than the camera. The focus ring is super smooth and very easy to do DMF/MF. Only one thing I didn't like is the lens' cap that is the same as the cheapies plastic lens' cap that came with my SEL35 macro lens. Regardless, this lens is the reason why I bought a7 and it did not disappointed me at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp enough to cut you I have actually heard complaints that this lens was TOO sharp... This lens is one of the best on the market for all the attributes that can be measured. Not just the best Sony lens but one of best out of the tens of thousands of lenses that have ever been released by any manufacturer. I defy anyone not to be impressed by the brilliant detail and beautiful image "pop" this lens produces. If you buy only one lens for your E-mount, this should be it !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the hype! For a camera enthusiast, the price is a lot to take in for a lens but with all the positive reviews and ratings by all the experts around the world made me bite the bullet to buy it for my A7. You will not be dissapointed and this lens is now attached permanently on my A7. You get what you pay for an this Sony Zeiss glass is no exception. A must have lens if it means you will only ever buy one lens for your FE mount camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Brilliant! This lens for me fills two roles: one as a 55mm standard lens on my A7R, and as a 82.5mm lens on my A6300 making it the perfect portrait lens. Everything from sharpness to lack of distortion to build quality is as good as it gets. I love using it and I love the results even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazingly Sharp Lens This lens coupled with the Sony A7rII is an absolute stellar combination. Just used it for a wedding and gave me great results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity and Sharpness Overload This lens will have you scrambling for the luminance slider in photoshop yes its that sharp. I shoot mainly portraits and this lens is the god of sharpness. I do a lot of boudoir where a 35mm and 55mm are the lenses I got to for the restriction of the space. It is a beautiful lens and the sharpest lens I have ever owned
