I have this lens and use on a NEX-7. I put an order in for it the minute I heard about it. Took almost three months to arrive. Nice piece of work.

There are a few pics on my flickr photostream, but most of the HDR ones were done with this lens. It was an HDR workshop.

Plan on getting this as soon as my A6000 ships from BHPhoto as my first lens for all around use. Then get the ultra wide zoom and a 50mm 1.8 prime I’m guessing.

I love this lens. It’ s not petfect with some softness in the corners , but in general it prpvides very good photos. I have this lens and the E 50/1,8 OSS on my A6000. I use the 50 mostly for portraits with a very good bokeh and the Vario Tessar for all the rest. All togheter is less than 1 kg.  with a very good quality. I use the 6000 more than my A99 ..
