There are multiple versions. I have the older EE style made by Konica the later version was made by Tokina (as I recall). The Tokina version is a bit smaller, very hard to find and supposed to be a bit sharper. I really like the Hexanon 24. Aside from the notchy aperture ring that every Konica lens has, it just feels great and is a real pleasure to use.

The Hexanon 24 makes a nice walk around lens on the a6000. It can close focus, it has recessed front element so it deosn't seem to be particularly susceptible to flare, it's sharp, has good contrast and I think it has a nice pop to it's images. I wish it were a bit smaller but you can't have everything.
