This review is from: SONY SEL24F18Z Carl Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 Wide-Angle Prime Lens Black
Pros: This lens has amazing optical quality. The pictures it takes are amazing. Even the low-light shots are leagues better than the kit lens. Autofocus is smooth, quick, and quiet.
Cons: I'll list it as a con, but it doesn't affect my rating. The lens is expensive. I paired it with a NEX-5N, so the lens by itself is more expensive than my camera was (I purchased the camera when it was released--paid around $700 I believe). Also, I've seen it said with products in this price range (or above) that simple things like packaging should be representative of the price, but that's certainly not the case. I didn't feel like the lens would have ever been damaged due to the packaging, but you just want to see more than a paperboard box with a lens this expensive, IMHO.
Other Thoughts: As a matter of personal standards, I never reduce a product's rating for anything you can clearly see in pictures or read in descriptions.
I knew I was buying a thousand dollar lens, so I won't dock an egg for that. I could see that the box looked just like the paperboard box that my camera was in. So I won't dock an egg for that.
If you can budget this price for a lens, I highly recommend you buy it. If you've been on the fence about whether it was worth it, I highly recommend you buy it.
I had used some "nice" vintage lenses from old SLRs (with an adapter) and I got some really, really great shots compared to the kit lens. But even those can begin to touch the pictures I'm taking with this. I miss my aperture ring, but I didn't have that on the kit lens either so it's not a deal breaker.
