The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Size, Weight, Image quality in the type of photograph for which it was designed
Cons:Considering the type of use I would say nothing.
Opinion:I pretty much said it all about pros and cons. I believe that when we talk about this lens we must evaluate it according to its use. it is clear that it cannot be used in portraits of a certain level. Equally clear is the fact that it is not a suitable optics for sport. This is a perspective dedicated to street and reportage. Mounted in an a7 it seems to have a fuji x100f in your hand as it is small. Put around the neck you can go around the city or you can take it on a trip without ever feeling the weight. It will also give very little in the eye so you can shoot much more easily without the subject noticing. Personally I always carry it behind, together with the 24mm f2.8 (which unfortunately I sold) they make a fantastic travel-street pair. I took a trip to Tokyo and shooting all day with these optics around my neck was really enjoyable. I also used it in some weddings, clearly for fun during lunch and it was just as pleasant allowing me to take home absolutely usable photos. Among other things, the image quality is good, so much so that printed there will be no great differences with more expensive optics. The hood is small, it mounts very well and above all makes the lens even more anonymous because it covers most of the writings on the front. In short, if you are looking for a light, cheap, small but quality lens for reportage and travel, this is the perfect one.
Opinion:If you buy this lens you already know that you can not have big pretensions. I have been owning it for a year, after buying my first Sony I could not afford an expensive lens and being new to Sony I needed more time to correctly choose the goals that would be part of my kit. I have not had some expectations, as it is a basic objective and for what it costs you know that it cannot be considered in your kit. Yet it surprised me after the first test shots, on a portrait level you get a bokeh not bad and you can also get a good detachment between the subject and the background. It has a good color rendering, does a bit of vignetting at the corners but is easily removable in post production. I still own it today and use it for travel or when I go around without weighing myself down too much.
Cons:Autofocus not very precise, plastic, not trpicalized,
Opinion:A lens that offers discreet results, not excellent, but considering the price you can not ask miracles. It vignettes enough at the maximum opening, to gradually shrink when the diaphragm closes. Autofocus a little dancer and not quite precise, but overall enough. The market offers better but not at this price. So considering the pros and cons a vote that is more than sufficient.
Pros:Excellent definition in the middle, good at the edges, even from the most open diaphragms. Lightness and size, good autofocus, price.
Cons:Looks like a toy.
Opinion:Bought second-hand with just under a year to use it on a Sony A7S and replace the 28 70 in kit. For what it costs also new is definitely a lens to have in the kit. The 35 is a bit of an all-rounder lens for light and thoughtful exits. Excellent definition in the middle and good at the edges even at 2.8, good autofocus even if not excellent on the old A7s, with some in low light or "problematic" backgrounds. It looks like a toy but works as a lens of size and especially significantly higher costs. Purchase recommended. Overall it deserves a 10
Pros:Great performance, amazing if you refer to the price. Featherweight and compact size.
Cons:Ability to upgrade the FW only via dock, sold separately at 60 euros.
Opinion:Taken to have a compact lens to mount on my A7II, for "light" outputs, without having to load the heavy duffel bag. Optical yield really great, considering the price (240 euros) and the light construction (plastic leg), although accurate. The brightness of 2.8, is acceptable for almost all situations, the focus works regularly, let's say that once mounted you want to leave it fixed. The alternative, except for the ultraluminous and bulky 35, is the 35 2.8 Zeiss, which does pretty much the same job, but costs three times. The only small defect I found using AFC: the A7II, if set to AFC, with diaphragm f 9 or more closed, passes in AFS on the central point, then with the original optics disappear the "squares" in continuous movement and the fixed center square appears. With the 35 2.8 Samyang, the same happens but the lens does not find the point of fire and the engine continues to go back and forth. If I use it on AFS, it focuses perfectly. The inconvenience should be possible by updating the FW, from what I have read in the documentation, but to do this you have to buy the dock, which more or less is a "cap" retro lens with a usb port, sold at the nice figure of 60 euros, since I have no other Samyang lenses , and the problem is marginal, I decided to keep it that way.
