About the Sony Alpha SEL-24F18Z 24mm f/1.8 lens

Zeiss speaks for itself
The Zeiss logo on this handsome, moderately wide fixed focal-length lens will tell you what you need to know. Optical innovation and painstaking attention to detail have spawned a lens that is more than up to your critical standards. The 24mm focal length is approximately equivalent to a 35mm lens at full-frame (35mm) size. With crystal clarity, even at its fastest f/1.8 aperture, this lens will reward your artistic eye by rendering big spaces with precision and style.

Zeiss speaks for itself
The Zeiss logo on this handsome, moderately wide fixed focal-length lens will tell you what you need to know. Optical innovation and painstaking attention to detail have spawned a lens that is more than up to your critical standards. The 24mm focal length is approximately equivalent to a 35mm lens at full-frame (35mm) size. With crystal clarity, even at its fastest f/1.8 aperture, this lens will reward your artistic eye by rendering big spaces with precision and style.

Because of that generous f/1.8 aperture, great low-light performance is a given. For the same reason, you'll also be able to manipulate space and depth in your photos and videos for spectacular results. And that background will be even more smoothly and pleasingly defocused thanks to the seven-bladed, near-circular aperture design.

Excellent lens

Crutchfield customer from NY on 3/17/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is Sony best e mount lens. The optical quality is outstanding, razor sharp from center to edge, vibrant colors. The only thing is that it is a bit heavy. Highly recommended lens

Pros: Sharp center to edge, vibrant colors

Cons: Heavy, expensive

Incredibly Sharp...A Must Buy

Riz from Mclean, VA on 2/4/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Absolutely wonderful lens for the Sony NEX system. Very sharp prime lens. Perfect bokeh at F1.8. Very warm and saturated colors for the pictures taken. It is costly but worth it. I am using it with Sony NEX-5N and the results are stunning. Way better than other lens out there. I am waiting to try this one with Sony NEX-7 in a few weeks. Buy it from Crutchfield for their incredible support and service.

Pros: Sharp, Built Quality, Fast

Cons: Price
