The Sony 35mm f/1.8 DT SAM may be a budget-oriented prime lens but regarding its performance it may even be a viable option for enthusiasts. Resolution-wise it delivers a very solid performance.

Originally posted 2011-05-30 on A cheap standard lens is, by and large, a compulsory position in every reputable system. It was this way long time ago, when every analogue 35-mm camera owner could also buy a 50 mm lens with an aperture ranging from f/1.7 to f/2.0 and they didn’t have to...

This is a very good lens for the money. After reading the other reviews I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. I have been wanting a fast lens but prices were pretty high; then I saw this one. The auto focus is fast and accurate. The bokeh is great.

I love this lens. It is super clear, great in low light, and produces some great pictures. I really like how sharp the pics come out using this lens. Thanks to all the help from the Crutchfield team on recommending this one. I was really shocked on how well it worked in low light and indoors.

This little lens can produce fantastic images (in terms of sharpness, CA, light fall off, bokeh, etc); all despite of its very affordable price. That said, it's made of plastic and feels rather cheap and fragile in your hands, but if you think about its retail price...
