Considering the price, you would hope that the Sony 24mm Æ’/1.8 Sonnar T* ZA didn't disappoint - and happily, it doesn't. Sharpness is excellent even wide open, and other factors such as chromatic aberration, distortion and corner shading are well-controlled.

I've been searching for a prime lens that would give me an angle of view that would work for travel photography for both street and interior use and also for close-up (but not macro) work. This lens is right on the mark for the focal length I was looking for on an crop sensor camera.

Ok, but for the price, not my favorite. Love the colors, but sharpness and autofocus on Sony a6500 wasn’t that great for me. Perhaps my expectations were too great for this lens, but my Sigma Art 18-35 f1.8 outperforms this lens, in my opinion.

The other reviewers are spot on. Their technical description of this lenses attributes are spot on.What I will add is that this is my go to street photography lens. I was a little leary as I really wanted a 35mm walking around prime lens.I am not disappointed at all.

This lens is exactly what I've wanted. It's a 36mm equivalent, opens at 1.8. It's the perfect walk-around lens. Sharpness? Beautiful center at f1.8, beautiful everywhere at f2.8, perfect at f4.

This lens is amazing! Ever since it arrived, it has been my go-to lens. The price is a little high even for the international version but definitely worth it! It’s equivalent to a 35mm on a full frame. It’s sharp, not distortions, and little to no fringing at all and creamy bokeh.

Pricey but definitely worth it! It does everything for you. The depth of field is gorgeous! (But if you don't like a strong depth of field it might not be right for you) The F1.8 is just amazing for video in a low light environment.

i’m pretty impressed by the edge to edge sharpness this lens produces. time to put my 35mm aside!

I already had the 18-105 and was not sure if this would get any use. But after shooting some portraits, the color, warmth and detail are awesome. I have just moved from a Nikon D810 with all pro lenses to the Sony system and this lens sits on my a6500 most of the time.

I've owned almost every available Sony APS-C lens, and this is my favorite for the system. It's a wonderful travel lens.
