I was waiting to write this review until I had a chance to put the lens through proper due diligence. I have almost 30 years as a professional fashion and advertising photographer. I have used just about every line of gear, so I am able to justly rate this lens. It is simply fantastic.

Regarded as one of the sharpest lenses for any platform. It's really that incredible. If you're using this on an APS-C body just be aware that your effective field of view will be around 82mm. This is the one lens that I don't think will ever leave my bag.

This is a good lens. Lightweight, very sharp and great color reproduction. This is a good lens to pair with your mirrorless A7 series camera. Its not very big or heavy and the 49mm filter size will not break the bank if you shoot with filters.

This is my first full frame camera and my first full frame lens. That said I think this lens is as good as all of the reviews describe it. 55mm on a full frame is a bit "tight" but it works well for candid family portraits.

    Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

This lens definitely lived up to its Zeiss name! Superbly sharp across all aperture and from center to edges. The bokeh is very nice and smooth as a 55mm lens and the colors look great. I actually bought this lens instead of the 35mm and have not regretted it yet.

I got this lens to replace my inexpensive but effective Somy 50mm f1.8 for my a7riii. The autofocus is very fast. The lens is indeed tack sharp and it focuses much better than the 50mm in low light.

When fitted to my A7Rii at 42MP this 55mm lens allows me to crop in to sections of the frame as if they were the whole original frame size. Color, contrast and auto focus speed are also very good.

Very sharp (one of the sharpest for E-Mount cameras)! Compact for traveling! Nice colors! Just a great all-purpose lens on the Sony A7rIII.

This lens is sharp, fast focusing and lightweight. Coupled with the a7RIII it makes for a nice walking around camera-lens combination.
