It's image quality is good (although not fantastic like the Zeiss 55mm) but this lens's downfall is the slow'ish autofocus motor. If you do get it upgrade the lens firmware as it speed the AF up quite a bit.

For the money it's a good lens.
Really good price, was looking for one a few days back. Thanks!
Too long for me. But a great lens at a great price.
I'm tempted at the AW very good condition at 135 but will likely leave it. Shame this doesn't work in addition to the current Sony cashback promotion. That would be a bargain lol.

Anyone got feedback on this lens as looking to add to me small collection? Tia.
Image quality is very good. Autofocus in slow is low light. Manual focus is rubbish, as it is on all FE lenses. Smooth bokeh, very light and compact lens. Been using it extensively the past month.

What sort of photography do you use this with? Is it a good lens for day to day photos when you just want to take the one lens when out and about?

50mm in full frame is regarded as a standard lens. It gives a similar field of view and magnification as your eyes.

Take you’re existing lens, guessing you have a kit. Stick it at 50mm and decide yourself.

The benefit here is Prime lenses nearly always give better image quality and this will be faster(brighter) than the other lenses I suspect you have.
Would have considered this but just got the Excellent Sony E-Mount Zeiss Sonnar 55mm Lens FE F1.8 ZA from Amazon italy for 500ish, mind blowing sharpness. This is a good price so heat.
