    I took a short tour of a local small town's square armed with a single prime and my A7II. The lens was the Sony FE28/2 and I am quite impressed with the quality of the photos it produced. I had no problems with the reported distortions I have read about, or any other problems for that matter. Post processing is miminimal and none of the following photos has any distortion corrections other than some vertical perspective alignments. If you're looking for an excellent walk-around prime, I highly recommend the FE28/2.

    Yeah, if you've got a good copy (and it looks like you do) the distortion is severe but simple so if you let the camera/computer correct it, it isn't a problem. You lose a little overall sharpness but the lens is so sharp anyway I haven't noticed any issues in real world shooting.
