My main gripe with it is that I don't really love 55mm as a focal length

Used prices for this product are very fair for the quality of the lens. My main gripe with it is that I don't really love 55mm as a focal length. If you do, this lens can cover 90 percent of your needs, and the sharpness, contrast, and colors are outstanding. It's the base standard for optical performance in the Sony FF system.

it's allowed me to take wonderful photos of my children

This lens is incredibly sharp. Combined with the Sony a7III, it's allowed me to take wonderful photos of my children. The fast focusing and sharpness have resulted in a large number of ""keepers"". Daytime outdoor photos are extremely sharp. Indoors, I can shoot without flash for more pleasing photos that capture the ambience. I previously used Canon with the 35mm Art lens which was also very sharp. But the slow autofocusing resulted in fewer keeper shots. This lens is expensive, but I think it's worth it to capture the precious moments that I want to cherish and remember forever for my young children.

Awesome lens, UNBELIEVABLY SHARP

Awesome lens, UNBELIEVABLY SHARP, SUPER FAST AF, GREAT COLOR RENDITION, ALLLLMOST worth the price tag lol Sure its not a 1.2/1.4 but I don't shoot at those apertures much anymore. I tend to shoot around 2.2-2.5 so I have enough texture in the skin for retouching. Just my style :) But at 1.8 the bokeh is beautiful, and after owning wider aperture lenses you can't tell the difference really and on top of that you don't really wanna shoot wide open lol.

Spectacular glass meant for spectacular cameras!

Outstanding! There's a reason this lens is still one of the most sought after lenses for the A7 series. Bottom line is you get what you pay for. And I wouldn't get anything less for my brand new A7iii.

Love this lens. Usually shoot with zooms. This lens is so sharp and so light and fits on my A7R3 so well that it stay on my camera more and more.

Soft focus made it a no buy for me

Tried this lens out, on the a7riii, in a camera store. Both guys at the shop said they loved it. I'm glad I tried it before buying. I tested it at various stops and distances. Within 2 or 3 feet of the subject, it was nice and sharp. Anything beyond that and there was a VERY noticeable difference in the sharpness. Maybe the it was just the particular lens I had.

Beautiful results so far after shooting this week. Super quick focus with my a7iii and the lens is virtually silent when taking videos.

The sharpest lens I've ever owned.

One of my biggest regrets was selling this lens to buy the Sony 90 mm macro. The Sony/Zeiss 55 mm F1.8 is literally the sharpest lens I've ever owned (with the Sony/Zeiss 35 mm F2.8 coming in at a close 2nd). It produces some of the most outstanding image quality I've ever seen. That and its quality construction justifies the price. If you're on the fence between this one and the Sony 50 mm F1.8 and you have money to burn, the 55 mm is a no-brainer. Remember, you get what you pay for.
