The sharpest easy choice lensI'd used the SAL50F18 for a couple of years before buying this lens, I was reluctant due to the close focal length between the 2, but I can't bring myself to take it off the camera after using it, the 52mm focal length with this lens is as close as needs to be to the commonly regarded most natural focal length. Razor sharp like the SAL50F18 from f2.8 to f5.6 with very little compromise wide open. It's even sharper than the SAL50F18 at f/1.8 and from f/5.6 to f/10.
Focusing is fast and quiet, with a surprisingly close focusing ability, it will get a business card to nearly fill a photo - Twice as close as I can get with the SAL50F18.
My favourite prime lens under $500 from Sony, fantastic for parties and group photos, a perfect pair to the (in my opinion) best value lens for anyone buying their first Sony alpha crop sensor camera, the SAL50F18.
