It's awesome to have fairly fast and sharp lenses for that price, it's definitely worth it. I like using them for shooting night timelapses, they give me sharper images than my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8. They have a good working autofocus and they feel pretty sturdy.
For the cons, I only have one. Changing the aperture is a bit noisy and can be heard clearly while filming. It's not that big of a deal since I usually set up my camera to film in manual mode and don't change the settings during the scene, but I can assume someone filming in shutter priority mode could be annoyed by the noise they make while changing the aperture. Because of that, I have to give these lenses only 4 stars, but I still think they're worth the money for what I do with them.
I got these lenses because of the glowing reviews so I don't have to say much here. I am no professional photographer but I can definitely tell the lenses are sharper than Sony's 18-55mm kit lens. For a price less than one lens from Sony, the price is unbeatable. I particularly like the 30mm. It's smaller than the 19mm and much better apeture than the kit lens at 30mm. The 30mm becomes my walking around lens.
