I searched three times and couldn't find a show thread for this wonderful lens. :hmmm:
It's AF is fast and sure. The output doesn't disappoint.
Here it is on the A6400 with the Sigma 30mm 1.4 on the side.
On camera it's petite and handles nicely.

And a sample. It biases slightly towards sharpness over smoothness imo.

Po, the handsome little model that rarely complains.

Honestly, this is the lens that makes Sony APS-C special for me. Not to take anything away from the 16 and 30 of course.

Looks like it is a great lens.
I'd like to see these 'Showcase' threads start off with a picture of the lens being showcased, mounted on a camera.

Great idea. Should be on a sticky if it's not already.
