Graham, Norfolk

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light weight. Relatively cheap for quality prime glass. Image quality very good. Most of the time focuses quickly.
Bad points:
Sometimes "hunts" in dappled light. All lensese tend to I know, but this is more prone than most.

Carl, Twickenham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellant for portrait shots with smooth blurred backgrounds and very sharp foreground wide open (F1.4 to 2).
With higher F stops you can get amazing sharp, detailed pictures across the whole frame.
Great for low light situations
Contrast and colours are amazing from this lens.
You would be hard pushed to find something much better for double the money.
Bad points:
Could have faster AF - it's fast, but could be faster still.
Some people say it's a bit plastic. It does have a plasticised coating to protect the metal part of the body, some other parts are plastic, but in all honesty it doesn't affect the performance and it keeps the weight down.
The supplied lends hood is average, but does work to some degree.

stephen, Coleraine Sony prime lens portraits

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
fast, & no need for flash in any sort of normal light at all
Bad points:
depth of field is so so narrow that you must compose shot very carefully, sort of defeats the speed of the lens part above.
