  • Great bang for the buck

  • November 26, 2012
  • By: Scott

I have been using this lens for about 3 months on a Nex7 (with the LA-EA2) Pros- clear, crisp pictures. Typical for a prime lens. fairly compact considering the focal length.Great outdoor portrait lens. Got it on sale for $275, but even at regular price, its still an excellent value. Cons- Build quality is what you would expect for the price, OK, but not high end by any means. Not the fastest prime, only f2.8. Auto focus is fast but very noisy which makes this lens a poor choice for video. In conclusion, a great lens for the money and while not perfect, a decent choice for this focal length, not to mention it costs $1500 less than the Zeiss 85f1.4. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again
