The Sony E 30mm f/3.5 macro lens delivered a rather disappointing performance on the Sony NEX 7. The center image quality is absolutely great but the border- and especially corner-quality is sub-standard. The rather high amount of lateral CAs isn't helpful either.

Very sharp photos with this lens. Lightweight. Very good build quality. Autofocus is not quite as fast as some of my other lenses, but not bad, especially with focus setting on "spot". I typically use manual focus when shooting close-up shots.

Perfect for what I am using it for. I do wish they had a 2.8 for this camera without needing to buy a very expensive adapter.

    Nice little macro lens, soundless & lets you get in close to 3.5. Focus on multiple spots. Great addition to the camera.

I was spoiled by my previous camera (a DSLR) because I was able to get a decent macro zoom that served almost all my needs. With the NEX-7, things were not so simple. The 55-210 has a minimum focus distance of 1 m! So in order to get close, I had to spring for yet another lens.

    Manual Focus Often Needed

I really enjoy taking pictures of small objects and this lens excels at that. If you like taking pictures of flowers, food, insects or anything else at a close range this is definitely a required accessory.

I am not a pro photographer by any means, but I have owned several expensive type cameras. This lens rates up there with some of the expense lenses that I have purchased in the past. The glass clarity is phenomenal.

I’ve used a Canon 100mm macro lens and the Sony 50mm macro lens for many photos; this lens does not have the image quality of either of those two lenses. The borders are particularly soft on my NEX-7. And yet, I’ve used and enjoyed this lens plenty in the last month.
