    This lens is very sharp and takes great pictures (when paired with the right photographer). The Sony A6x00 series cameras make great use of this lens to focus quickly with minimal barrel distortion. This is a 45mm Prime equivalent when paired with the APSc sensor. It's a bit longer than the kit lens, but nicer in all other respects. Due to the 24M sensor on the A6000, it can be used in nearly every situation as you can crop 50% of the image and still get a nice, detailed image for an 8x10 print. It has a 52mm filter thread, a little larger than the kit lenses, but comparable to many 35mm lenses you may have sitting around. At 1.4, it's still fast, but focusing is a bit less accurate. 2.0 will give you nice background blur while still being easy to use without manual focus. The metal and plastic body look like it's made to last. I hope to be enjoying this lens for years to come.

    Good overall lens; not a bad investment

    Short and sweet: I believe this lens is good for any beginner, intermediate, or professional photographer. Very crisp picture quality, vivid colors. Only downside is the lens does not have any form of stabilization. This lens is great for photo, and if you have a camera gimbal, this can also be very great for video; camera in-body stabilization wouldn't be enough to produce smooth videos.

    Haven't used it as much as I would have liked. I was able to only use one time. Took about 40 pictures. Was very satisfied with the results I got from this lens. Auto focus is great, the sharpness is great. So far so good

    I highly recommend getting away from the lenses that come with your camera. The additional performance with the better optical stabilization is highly recommended for the least amount of blur.

    It has great auto focus speed and charity. Very sharp and fast. The size is small and compliments the Sony a6500 I use it on. Great to use on a gimbal. Great low light focus.

    With the first frame, I knew this is going to be the sharpest lens I have for my A6000. I was blown away with the IQ and fast focus in low light. You won't be disappointed.

    great everyday walk around lens. With the crop fact you get the equivalent of a 50mm lens.
