  • Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* SEL55F18Z

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    compact size prime sharp fast-focusing well-built

    This lens is sharp. Its small and lightweight package with the lens measuring 64.4mmx70.5mm and weighing just 281 grams. The build quality is great ( its a Zeiss branded lens). I use this lens for filming and Im always again surprised about how good the image looks. The quality is great and 55mm for cinematic look is not bad.

    good image quality good prize
    not well build, feels cheap

    The build quality of this lens is ok but not very well. It feels cheap. Autofocus is exceptionally silent and relatively fast in my experience. The lens had some issues with the autofocus on Sony cameras. This problem was solved by a firmware update. The image quality is great. Its a great lens for filming.
