Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* SEL55F18Z review by Prime Minister

Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* SEL55F18Z review by louisjaffe

 

This is a superb lens optically. I compared it with the Sony (non Zeiss) E-mount 50mm f1.8 OSS on a Sony Alpha a6000 in various shooting situations. The Sony lens is 1/3 the price of the Zeiss, or less.

Optically excellent

Not the best focuser on Sony a6000

Awesome photos, fast autofocus, built to last

pricey
