Small but powerful
SEL24F28G 15 September 2021 by DeeRay (USA)
I have a Sony a7c body and this lens works well with that. This lens, physically, is a lot smaller than all my other lenses. I really like the compact design, since I am usually on the move. This lens is very easy to carry and take with you. It's also not very heavy too. This lens supports manual adjustment to the aperture and focus which I also really like. The lens also is somewhat protected against dust and water. Again, a plus for my on-the-go outdoor shoots. Overall, a small but powerful lens.

Ultra-light, ultra-compact, ultra-images
SEL24F28G 08 September 2021 by safxtacy (USA)
First thoughts on this lens is that it is small! Especially for being a f/2.8. Along with being small it is super light, but that's not to say it isn't sturdy as I banged this against a door (by accident of course) and had it fall from about 4 feet and it still kept chugging along. The pictures this takes are crisp. I did notice that it had some hard time focusing in super dark light at one point, but it might have been an anomaly as I went out the next day for the same shot and didn't have any issues. Likely user error and I don't remember the settings I was using. The aperture adjustment ring is my favorite. I like that you can have it smooth or click. I still haven't decided which I like more. Click allows me to quickly go back, but smooth just allows a more refined adjustment. Overall this lens is awesome. I've used it on my A7C as well as my A7R3. With the A7C it's the ultimate portable power set-up. Ultra-light, and ultra-compact. With the A7R3, it holds it's own with a bigger frame. Definitely nice to have the option. It lives on A7C, but "visits" my A7R3 when I need to take a few other lenses, but am restricted on space, perfect for that role to have the ability to get the shot I need.

Finally, an affordable prime full frame lens!
SEL24F28G 04 September 2021 by NoTalk (USA)
I was so excited to add a full frame 24mm prime to my collection! I've been using a different prime 24mm that wasn't full frame, which was very limiting and hardly actually a wide lens once the crop was on. This lens doesn't disappoint! Unlike other lenses in this price range, this lens is very solid in construction. Even though I received this lens at a discounted price, the value at retail is huge! I received this product at a discounted price through a product testing program in exchange for my honest opinion. It's fully capable of being used completely manually, or locked into auto for the camera to control. There is a button for toggling between AF and MF. I use Sony cameras, so all the features work flawlessly. It's fairly quiet and the picture is more crisp than previous 24mms that I have owned. It's still a little soft around the edges, but it is definitely an improvement! I immediately locked in the E-Mount and used it for a green screen shoot. Using the camera sideways I was able to capture a full subject in a relatively small bedroom! It looks and works wonderfully and didn't cost an arm and a leg! I am so far very pleased and would recommend to anyone who needs crisp, wide, full frame images. Especially, videographers who are shooting interior and need 4k from their cameras!
Great wide angle option for full frame Sony
SEL24F28G 01 September 2021 by Veloce916 (USA)
I have never spent much time with a wide angle prime so it took me a few shots to figure out the best ways to use this lens, but once I did I found it pretty rewarding. It's a 2.8 so it does a nice job with light and I was also happy with the colors. Post editing was really light, and in some cases not needed at all. The lens is light, compact and relatively inexpensive by Sony standards. It made my full frame A9 feel much smaller than I am used to. In short this lens is a great addition to anyone's kit from new user to pro. I found it a perfect landscape lens, good at full body portraits and anything large like statues or yachts. I can't imagine I would pack my camera bag for any sort of travel without it. I should mention that I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.
So Far, So Good!
SEL24F28G 25 August 2021 by stephenmilner (USA)
Although small / lightweight, this lens is solidly built and features great manual controls (aperture ring, focus ring, etc.). The body seems rock solid and it is a fun and easy lens to use for everyday photography. Although designed for a full-frame sensor, I am using this lens on a Sony A6000 (APS-C), and it’s performed great so far. Sharpness is good and the bokeh is nice and smooth. Though I haven’t shot with it much yet, I can see this becoming one of my go-to lenses when I just want to get out with the camera and not haul a bunch of gear around. The lens is somewhat pricey, and there are obviously similarly positioned 3rd-party lenses that can be had for a bit less, but this little lens checks a lot of boxes optically in a lightweight, easy-to-handle package. **I purchased this product at a discounted price, in exchange for my honest appraisal of its performance.**
Good for video and compact size

This lens is good for photo and video and compact size. In the future we hope to get better with f1.4
