  • Sony E 24mm f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* ZA SEL24F18Z

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Incredible resolution, even wide-open! Have yet to find any flare or ghost images in my pix - many shot into sun!
    Expensive, as it costs more than the body.

    The is a reason most photojournalist make a fast 35mm their go-to optic: It will cover most situations and most lighting conditions encountered. The 24mm Carl Zeiss works out to the same acceptance angle on the APC sensor of the Sony NEX cameras as a 35mm lens on a full-frame digital or film camera. Over the long haul and in the widest variety of shooting conditions, a prime lens will hold up better than a zoom. I know, as I have been using both since the zoom or vari-focal lens was invented.
