For those of you who missed out on this on Prime Day they’ve dropped the price again. I forgot I still had my CamelCamelCamel alert up for it. Great for portraits and low light shots! It might be pricey compared to the other brands but if you’ve a Sony APC I don’t think you can go wrong.

why this over sigma 30mm 1.4 DC DN which is cheaper and sharper?
A lot smaller than Sigma and lighter. Also got inbuilt image stabilisation.

Smaller. Lighter. Stabilised.

Otherwise nothing else, the sigma lens crushes this one.

This has image stabilisation built in. Purchased this from Currys the other week as it had £80 cashback from Sony. Turned out the cashback quoted by Currys wasn't actually for this lens so I took it back.

Considered buying the Sigma one but it's bigger, heavier and has no image stabilisation. The Sony lens is so quick at focusing and pictures are so sharp. I have the 50 mm version of this and pictures are incredible.

Some reviews say the Sigma isn't as quick to autofocus. The motor is noticeably loud when focusing and it weighs in a lot more than the Sony. Horses for courses.

Just seen this post, on my way to work and purchased it right away. Big thanks OP, I'm very happy. It's a fantastic, low light prime lens.

You missed out the most important thing auto focus, its slower than the sony and it misses focus more often.

Biggest thing for me is the slower auto focus of the Sigma and it can miss focus every so often and the Image stabilisation is great for low light and video, not to mention the auto focus in video is far far better, yes Sigma is about 5% sharper but has a few down sides the Sony doesn't.

Wasn't excited about this price as it's about average but I'm being offered to pay in 5 interest-free monthly installments of £51.80 which makes this V tempting. Has anyone done that, is it hassle free?

@anthonyjames90 or anyone what was the price on Prime day please?

Thank you my friend for your support. It's good to talk. More community-minded people like you is what we need
Thanks ordered
I gotta stop looking at this. Already have the sigma 30 1.4 for my 6400 but the whole reason I went Sony mirrorless in the a6xxx series was to try and improve pocket ability. This would make it a bit smaller but at a reasonably high cost. Could put the money towards the 18-135 or maybe even the 350 at some point. But for some reason I am drawn to this despite it not making much sense.

Yes, it's no more hassle than paying. Nothing extra required for you to do other than select monthly payments option

Where have you seen it for this price? It's usually around £330. The SEL50F20 is usually around this price.

Ebay. Does that count?

Sadly, in my opinion, not. I've not seen it less than £329 unless you get it from e-infin or the like then you run the risk of paying import tax. Even then it's close to the UK price.

Mine arrived yesterday and I've been snapping away with it. Love it. So pleased I stuck to getting this lens. Again, thanks to OP
