Pros: Sharp sharp sharp! Lightness, colors, aesthetics.

Cons: Hood material.

Opinion: Optically monstrous, the sharpness is incredible already at TA. This remarkable result allows, on Sony type A7III or A7IV to have almost a zoom, since the quality remains very high even cropping, in practice it is as if you had an 18-28 in your hand. Vivid colors are typically Zeiss. The lens has very few optical defects, however correctable via software. The construction, despite the lightness, give the impression of great solidity. Note of personal merit, the tulip aesthetic, particular and captivating, however so original as to make it immediately recognizable. I took it used by paying it the right, although from new it is perhaps slightly expensive. But its real flaw in my opinion is the hood, in simple plastic, inadequate to the coat of arms of the brand, blazon that for the rest I find fully respected by the incredible optical performance.

Pros: Compactness, quality, LED display that for night photos is a godsend, colors, open diaphragms rendering, dialing focus.

Cons: The price (but the quality you pay), some small night flare.

Opinion: I bought this used lens, and since I own it I can do it more than not, I think it will be a lens that I will never remove from the backpack. I use it with the sony A7II, so not quite the latest mirrorless sony house, but the results are always spectacular. Excellent build quality, with the goody of the led diplay on the barrel that for those who see little like me, at night is really indispensable. If it had been 14 mm it would have been a masterpiece! I would definitely buy it back

Pros: quality, weight

Cons: nothing relevant

Opinion: It is the first Zeiss that enters my backpack and I must say that this lens fully satisfies me at least in combination with sony a7r4. Excellent overall quality, light and therefore ideal for walks in the mountains, sharpness and rendering of superlative colors. I think it will remain forever in my backpack, which has never happened for any other lens I have possessed, promoted with flying colors!

Pros: weight, clutter, color yield, microcontrast, sharpness to the awkward center, rendered to open diaphragms.

Cons: field curvature, non-homogeneous rendering at the edges, exaggerated impact of diffraction.

Opinion: Extreme lens... I would recommend to those looking for a high-performance wide to go on Tamron or the canon adapted if they want to use filters. or directly on 16 35 2.8 sony/12 24. I took it to have the top even at the edges and alternative solutions , the wider they start to have big compromises. let's say 18 is the last call to have an excellent frame on large pixels like a7r3 or a7r4. Over.. you go down! This glass is bought for minimal dimensions as a complementary lens to a 24 70/24 105... and its use destination is not the landscape but the reportage where it giants on any competitor on Full frame... In the center, just see the mtf of Cicala (lensrental) to see that if you use it with a big mpx in fact you can use crop that make the lens an 18/24 quality. embarrassing sharpness and quality of contrast, there is no better than already said. Problems arise at the edges, not for lack of quality but for a curvature of the field that if you use glass for landscapes requires fire on the edges to have an all-sharp frame. Another unfavorable point even if it arises from a huge pro is the yield to TA and up to 5.6 with sensors without resolute AA filter... IMPRESSIONANTE as in the minimum diffraction zones come out minimal details, subtle but perfectly reproduced not as do other glass (sigma on all) super-contrasted and almost passed by the black marker. but drawn with a pencil even 100% thin. all this disappears violently passed f8 and begins a veil, confroting the major openings, all over the frame (diffraction). Average and stable flare resistance lower than Canon competitors (15 35 f4 outstanding. 16 35 iii 2.8 INCREDIBILE) against which I tried the glass and against which everyone knelt out of respect :D Once you buy it you can say... 18 are settled. I can avoid thinking about it for life! :D Excellent lens that must be tamed and that you have to know how to use especially in the pesteristic ...

Pros: Colors and sharpness at the top, blurred pleasant and progressive, light and well balanced compared to the Sony A7 bodies, AF fast and precise, good but not extreme flare resistance. Display on barrel very useful for night photography, dial focus fluid and pleasant.

Cons: High price, lack of grip on lens body, slight distortion (disappears in a clik), body design and lampshade not for everyone.

Opinion: Great lens for both yield and use. It pairs very well with the Sony A7 to which I have paired it and returns really pleasant images and with colors and tonal steps at the top. The display is very useful for night focus and smooth and pleasant to the touch. It may not convince design and lampshade but for everything else it is a beautiful lens.
