    This review is not so much for the lens--everybody raves about the image quality and I can confirm that it is indeed incredibly sharp--as the service. The lens, as you see here, is not a stocked item. It will drop-ship directly to you from Sigma in CA, as I recall. This is not a secret; they told me this ahead of time in the store. But if you are in a *hurry* to get it, be smart and plan ahead. I bought mine here about 3.5 weeks ahead of Xmas, but it still was not going to end up coming on time for my son's "big" present. I had to buy one locally for 12-25 and then return this one after Christmas. (NOTE: the price is the same everywhere, but I was hoping to use & receive Rewards points on the purchase.) I ended up keeping the extra lens as an early birthday present to myself since both my son and I have the excellent a6300. So....all this to say, 1. incredible lens for landscape and vlogging, 2. plan ahead for shipping time since it won't be in stock in any of the BB warehouses or stores, and 3. they will take good care of you in the store if you have to do anything weird with returns, Rewards, etc.

    Best Wide Angle APS-C Lens!

    Posted

    These lens are the best you will get for Sony's APS-C camera lineup. Works great with all of the a6000 series including the a6300 and a6500. The focus ring is super smooth so if you're doing manual focus, it's super satisfying when rotating the ring. The AF is pretty good, even though it isn't native Sony lens which means that it's not as accurate and it tends to hunt for focus quite a few times. If you listen very closely, you might be able to hear the AF noise in the lens but it's no big deal. But for the most part, it focuses very well and these are PERFECT for vlogging. I've been using these for my photoshoots and vlogs and let me tell you, the bokeh at f/1.4 is extremely creamy and just amazing to look at. Overall, if you need wide angle lens, whether it be for photography or videography, these should be your first choice. Hands down my favorite lens for my a6000 and it hasn't been switched out for my other lens. Goes to show how amazing it is.

    For the Price point, this lens is undeniable one of the best! 1.4f allow for sharp images, great for low light but one thing I've notice (which is normal) motor noise during focusing in video. This noise does not occur in the sigma 30mm but presist in the 16mm, which I had to knock it a Star but an External Microphone would solve this issue. Quality build is as always, 10/10

    Best wide angle lens for Sony a6000 series.

    I’ve read all the reviews and have waited for over a year till Best Buy finally got it in stock. Let me tell you, the wait was well worth it. This lens has got to be the best wide angle lens for the Sony a6000 series. I’ve purchased and returned several other brands (including Sony), but this is a keeper. The photos are crisp, auto focus is super fast, low light quality is amazing, and the bokeh is breath taking due to the 1.4 aperture.

    I bought the 30mm before buying this and I don't regret either purchase. The focus ring on this one does work more intuitively then the 30mm. Amazing sharpness, and great in low light. I've used it for everything from street to astro and it's excelled in everything. I use mine with an a6300 and love it. I'm sure the results would be even better with a a6500.

    A very fine wide angle for sony a6500. Slightly warmer in color tones than the sony 18-135, no visable distortion, and great inside with low light. Yes - a bit bigger than some of the tiny sony lenes, but provides a nice balance with camera and for the money, a best value.

    I’m still a newbie to photography but this lense is perfect for me since most of my time awake is at night. I needed a fast wide lense for nightscapes and this fits the bill.

    My order just got delayed for a month. I just wish I was able to use it during my vacation. Heard a lot of good things about this lens. Perfect fit for Sony a600.

    This is an awesome lens for low light and landscape shots. I recently took it to Iceland and captured the Northern lights with ease.
