Pros: Everythink

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: The lens is was introduced with the A7 series into the market. At that time the cameras were the limiting factor. Since the Sony A7R II you can enjoy the full performance of this lens which is ranked currently as #7 in DxOMark. The lens reaches maximum resoltution in the center at f4 while the edges are at f11 at its best. There is a test report in the internet which shows the values for the lens mounted on a A7R and a A7R II https://www.digitalkamera.de/Zubeh%C3%B6r-Test/Testbericht_Sony_FE_55_mm_1_8_Sonnar_T_ZA_SEL-55F18Z/9187.aspx So the lens is still a great performer in 2021. Considering size and weight there is nothing better. So when you shoot with Zeiss glass, you want to have the Zeiss pop up effect. That delivers the lens, even at f4 it is noticable. The seperation of an subject from the background is simply great. The lens provides rich details of the subject, while the background is blurred. The colors and the contrast are typically Zeiss.

Pros: Sharpness, overall appearance, weight and small size

Cons: Spherochromatism up to f/2.8

Opinion: Very nice lens, with excellent construction. Sharp already at full aperture and with a beautiful blur. He suffers a bit of spherochromatism which in my opinion is his only major flaw. I tested it comparing it to the Sony 50 f/2.5 "G" and the Samyang 50mm FE II and (in my very personal test) it turned out to be the one I preferred to the three. (if anyone wants to see the images I used for the test, they can go to my site www.marcograssi.it).

Pros: luminous fixed weight quality

Cons: a bit the price

Opinion: Lens that meets the qualities that I usually look for in a perspective, namely: high quality, fixed and bright lens and lightness. This lens in my opinion is not to be compared to other cheaper 1.8 lenses that exist in the market, here we are beyond and the quality as always you pay a little more. Together with the sony 14mm 1.8, the zeiss batis 18mm 2.8 and the sony 135 1.8 it entered by right in my photographic backpack for the merits that I have listed above. Rating 9.8

Pros: sharpness,weight,af,colors

Cons: Focus breathing

Opinion: I think it's the best lens at this sony focal point for those who take pictures for those who make videos a little less because the lens suffers bloody from focus breathing and for which sealing in videos is not the best.... that said, even though I make more videos than photos in the end I think I'll keep it for my photo exits....

Pros: Construction, image quality, sharpness, price of used

Cons: Eye AF sometimes inaccurate, minimum focus distance

Opinion: It is a really excellent optics for yield and sharpness, already fully usable at full opening becomes amazing from f/2.8. Used on A7rII the AF is precise and fast, however with the Eye AF it makes it a little difficult to hook faces especially in situations with low brightness (but maybe it is the copy I have on probation). The focal is a bit suitable for everything and the small size always entices you to have it in the bag. If we want to find defects, I would say that the minimum focus distance (55cm) is not exhilarating but you get used to it. The price of the new maybe is a little high for an f/1.8
