Sharp Lens

By Byron
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2018-09-12

This is a preliminary review as I haven't been able to make many test shots, but for the ones I have made they were incredibly sharp, corner to corner. Great contrast. Lens is light weight and fits nicely on my A6500. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that the circular polarizer that came with it is a joke. Took me almost 15 min to get it to screw on. I would imagine regular filters will be fine, but a spinning filter like the polarizer is difficult to grab the lower portion of the filter and get it to screw on. And don't get me started on trying to remove it.

I wanted to love this lens

I was excited about getting this lens and wanted to love it. I have the A6000, 18-200mm lens and Sony 50mm lens. The 24mm (35mm on full frame) angle of view is my favorite, and I looked forward to having a fast, sharp prime walk-around lens for my A6000. Yes, the images of people were better than the zoom lens but not as great as I thought they would be. Autofocus was slow. Landscape images didn't have the pop I expected from a Zeiss lens at this price. So, I am returning. Many thanks to B&H for their great customer service.

If this had OSS this would be the best lens for sony aps-c.

This lens is perfect. It's missing OSS though which would have made this incredibly worth every penny for use on aps-c. It's crisp and fast. There's little to no distortion. This is so fun to use whether to with autofocus or manual. It is pretty expensive though compared to the 35mm which everyone chooses over this. If you have an aps-c sony camera and don't ever plan on upgrading to a full frame this is worth it. Otherwise, the 35 is a better option.

Excellent choice for a go-to, walk around lens

I've been searching for a prime lens that would give me an angle of view that would work for travel photography for both street and interior use and also for close-up (but not macro) work. This lens is right on the mark for the focal length I was looking for on an crop sensor camera. I test drove it at an arboretum on an overcast day so I could get an idea of how it would perform indoors without flash, hand held. I was very happy with the quality of the photos and the color pop from the flowers was outstanding. The sharpness on the lens I got is excellent and when I processed the raw images in Lightroom, the lens correction was minimal if at all. Wide open gave me a sufficiently shallow depth of field and great bokeh. Smaller apertures were also sharp; may be some lens fall-off at edges but I haven't taken enough photos to know for sure. I use this lens on a Sony A6500. The attached images were shot with Auto ISO, Aperture Mode, no tripod, no flash.

Buy good glass

Paired this lens with my a6500 camera and I really like the combination. This lens has a small form factor, well built, and has the angle that fits my shooting style. Great for street photography as well as portraits. I love the sharpness, colors produced, and speed of this lens. It was a bit more money but once you use this lens you will really enjoy your work much better - don't cheat yourself, buy good glass.

Great lens, still wish it had OSS

By Ryan

This is a great lens - very sharp, I like the field of view as 24mm looks very natural on APS-C for a good general purpose lens, and f1.8 is great for low light. My bottom line is that I bought this while on vacation in NYC and I ended up with some great low light / night time shots that I probably would not have been able to get otherwise. So it's a keeper for me. I give it 4 stars because it doesn't have OSS (stabilization) and I think it's a little overpriced. If it had OSS (or was less expensive) it would be 5 stars for sure. Also, I don't get the Zeiss pop that I hear people talk about. I like the colors from the E35f1.8 and the E50f1.8 just as much. I think it's a placebo effect.

Great lens

I own the 24 and 55 f1.8’s Sony Zeiss primes and use on an A6500. Both yield spectacular images especially in low light. Amazing bokeh. Both feel great in the hand on my A6500 and body and lenses make for a compact package that travels well. Highly recommend both, as these are all you will need for most everyday photography situations. Note that I am an amateur and use primarily for family and travel.

can i use this lens with my sony a7 or a7r
Asked by: Anonymous
While the SEL24F18Z 24mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens can be used on the a7 and a7R, it is not a full frame lens. This means you will need to shoot in the cropped sensor mode with this lens.

On the a6000 series camera how does the image quality compare to the Sony fe 28mm f2.0 lens?
Asked by: Mark C.
This is a higher quality lens than the Sony FE 28mm F2.0. This is a Zeiss Sonnar lens which has better caliber optics and a nicer overall build quality. It will product a superior overall image.
