  • ePHOTOzine 9.5/10
    [Tested on Sony variant]
    It offers a fantastic performance, superb sharpness in particular, and a reasonable price tag. All round, a very satisfactory and desirable lens. A slight downside is the fiddly nature of some of the mirrorless cameras, with many functions tucked away in menus as opposed to dedicated switches and dials. This is not the fault of the lens though, which handles totally smoothly.

    [Tested on Sony variant]
    It may be the sharpest APS-C lens that I’ve yet tested, and it’s no “paper-tiger”, either. That sharpness was there in a wide variety of real-world lighting conditions. It has great color, exceptional aberration control and flare resistance, and fast, accurate autofocus. It worked well for both stills and video work [...]. It does suffer from some obvious pincushion distortion and the bokeh is perhaps a little busy.
