I had this lens on my wish list for a couple of years. Since I prefer prime lenses to zooms, this one fills the gap between my 14 mm ultra wide and my 30 mm wide-normal in my Sony A-mount (APS-C) kit. The images that I have gotten with it are acceptably sharp for my needs.
I was disappointed with this lens. The sharpness, clarity and contrast are nowhere near as good as the Sony 16-35mm zoom lens. The only reason to buy a prime lens is to get better image quality than you can from a zoom.
I purchased this lens for my a99 body for the purpose of capturing indoor photography of subjects (head to toe). I found my 50mm f1.4 and a CZ 85mm f1.4 lenses are both great in low light, but I find myself really constrained when trying to distance myself from my subject (especially in a 10x10...

Plan to use this during decent into magma chamber in Iceland
It's not as sharp as I expected. I'm spoiled I guess. All of my lenses are ZEISS or Minolta/Sony G series. I have two lenses that are not ZEISS or G series. The Sony 16mm distorts the way I want. This is my least favorite lens due to quality, sharpness and vignette.
My favorite lens - sharp, and excellent construction.
Bought this lens recently for a77 and it looks fantastic. Picks up a great landscape shots with stunning DOF even at high speed. If you're looking to shoot fast in broad daylight odds are you will want to pick up an ND filter or two because 1/8000 of a second still leaves some pictures washed...
