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
