  • Solid Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - May 18, 2019

    I have used this lens for 7 month now several times a week. I use it for real estate photography and it is excellent. Works really well and I can't say anything bad about it. It is a solid professional lens.

  • Amazing lens!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ecajoe - July 6, 2017

    I'm a professional real estate photographer and recently switched to Sony. This lens is perfect for what I shoot. It's attached to my a7II and the images are super sharp with well controlled flair and distortion. My clients have noticed a change for the better in all my work. I'm very pleased with the results I am getting with this great lens.

  • The only choice in Sony wide angle zoom
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bert - October 20, 2015

    I recently switched from Nikon to Sony and having had the the Nikon 14-24mm, I wanted something comparable for my A7R for my landscape needs. This lens fills that need very well and has a more useable zoom range. It's a stop slower but not an issue with the sensitivity of the latest sensors being produced. Very sharp with minimal distortion.

    Fantastic Lens used for both my a7c and a6600 for our YouTube cooking show The Felix's. Joys of Cooking. Three lenses for everything, and this one defiantly is a must-have. This lens is great for stills and videos.
