Max, England Professional Documentary Photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very sharp. Very versatile. It does stand to a professional standard comparable to any professional 35mm in full frame cameras.
Bad points:
It looks like Sony will only make one Zeiss for NEX. I would like to see the same lineup given to the A mount (24, 50, 85) in fast lenses (f2 or brighter) so the NEX line can truly replace my other DSLR equipment.

Michael,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The colour, contrast, sharpness, build, handling and overall character of this lens is superb. I absolutely love using it. I wasn't sure about the price, whether it would really be worth it, but as soon as you mount it on your own NEX and start taking photos with it, it really comes into its own. Have never felt so creative about photography as I do with this 24mm on my NEX-6.
Bad points:
Absolutely none.
