Again, the last ZEISS lens that I did not have. I prefer this to the zoom. Optics are great. It's a ZEISS. There is nothing more to say.

 

Great Expectations

I'd recently started shooting with primes due to their reputation for being sharp. I'm not disappointed. I'll be adding a few more primes to my two that I have.

 

Awesome and very sharp lens.

I'm a Sony user. Alpha 77. This is a great lens on the A 77. Zeiss lens...so much could be said, except exceptional glass. Anyone looking for a lower price Zeiss lens will appreciate its functionality.

 

Exceptional Glass.

Heavy as an ox, and that's what I want - reassurance above light weight. Pair with full-frame camera and ditch the gym membership.

 

What can one say - it's a Zeiss

The Sony SAL-24F20Z 24mm f/2.0 A-mount Wide Angle Lens is everything you could hope for. I purchased it for my Sony a55, and due to the sensor configuration on the Sony, you must multiply by 1.5 to find how the lens will perform on the non-full frame camera body. This lens becomes a 36mm equivalent wide angle lens on the a55. (Had I purchased a 50mm lens, the camera turns it into a 75mm, which was what I didn't need.) I had really wanted Zeiss glass, and the 28mm is all they make, not a 35mm, nor a 50mm for this camera. I decided to learn to shoot with the 36mm window on the world, and I am not looking back. There is a learning curve on a prime lens, especially if you are like me - I had been shooting the Sigma 18-250 zoom, a fine lens in it's own right. Now, my two lenses that travel with me are Zeiss, the other is their Sony 85mm (127.5mm on the a55). I will take a few months to shoot these lenses and return to update the reviews. My first take on the 28mm is wonderful, the lens is almost too sensitive, focus with these is an art. The lens gulps so much light I now routinely take the camera out at night, which opens up a new world. The field of view with the 36mm equivalent is very useful, had it been a true 28mm, it may have been too wide-angle. Alpha owners do not yet have a huge Carl Zeiss selection of primes, so do not be afraid to lay down the serious cash it takes to own one of these. By stepping over the line to own a Zeiss lens, you are taking your hobby to art status. Life is too short to wonder what you might be able to do...
