I received this lens last week. So far so good. It's not perfect, but for the price I can't complain. Check out the images!

Pros:
- Sharp images
- Fast focusing
- Lightweight and compact
- Very nice OOF bokeh
- Does close-up focusing
- Cost less than $400 USD

Cons:
- Noticeable purple fringing wide open
- Prone to flare and light reflections
- Lens barrel is cheap plastic
- Sharpness suffers when shooting close-up (noted in various reviews)

All shot with the A9 + Samyang Rokinon 35mm f/1.8 FE Lens:
