    Beautiful Lens for Street Photos

    I own an A6000, I have the kit lens, the 50 1.8, and the 55-210. Those lens are like the super starter pack and I figured I wouldn't need anything else. I rented a 35mm Zeiss and was very disappointed by it. I looked at this lens and I kept seeing it go out of stock over and over and over again so when it finally came up again I bought it. I got it in and I was really impressed. I opened it with the Best Buy Camera supervisor and he was mind blown with me. The photos are amazingly sharp, the focal distance was perfect for me! The colors are one of the first things that popped out to me when I took a picture. If I'm able to edit this review I will put up some pictures of this beauty. The build quality makes my other lens feel really cheap, (although they kinda are lol) and it comes with a really cool case. Definitely recommend this lens for any A6000 user if you have the money for it. It's my new favorite lens.

    More accurately I'd give it a 4.5 because auto focus isnt as great as other Sony lenses, but the quality, colors, build all make up for it by alot. This hasnt left my A6000 since and I even sold my other lenses because the quality of this convinced me to upgrade my other lens. Definitely buy it, if you need a wide angle lens or something for street photography. How close you can get with this lens is also amazing!

    Sony E 24mm f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* ZA SEL24F18Z Review
    Considering the price, you would hope that the Sony 24mm ƒ/1.8 Sonnar T* ZA didn't disappoint - and happily, it doesn't. Sharpness is excellent even wide open, and other factors such as chromatic aberration, distortion and corner shading areFull Review
