Good, low cost prime lens
October 17, 2016
It is not comparable to those $1K+ prime lenses, but it is good enough for overall shooting. If the goal is to go up one full F stop for better low light performance than the 16-50mm F3.5-56 kit lens offers, this is the cheapest way I know, to achieve it. I bought one of these lenses in August 2016, and took a few nice landscape photos with it, even a ventured to try astro photography, with moderate success. It works great even for video. Focuses fast, and the picture quality is consistent. If you would however want to completely replace your kit lens, the Sony 16-70mm F4 lens is a much better but significantly more expensive option.
