Sony 24mm f/2 SSM Carl Zeiss Distagon T* SAL24F20Z review by Beachrider

Pros: Amazing focus performance. Coatings are doing a lot of work on the flare and contrast. Very solid construction.
Cons: A little heavy. Somewhat pricey.

OK, I gave it all 10s. I would have given a 9.75 on image, if possible. Very usable down to f/2.0, but corners are a little soft at that setting.


You need to work really close to subject to exploit semi-macro capabilities.


My first Zeiss. Price for 24mm (f/2) is 70% of price for 24-70 (f/2.8), both from Zeiss. So it is a little pricey.

Pros: Excellent sharpness and contrast, Zeiss colors, size, distortion.
Cons: None.

Very sharp across the frame at all apertures, except at infinity where the very extreme corners need to close down to f/5.6 to sharpen up. Results are simply amazing. Even at f/2 it is as good as it gets.

Pros: sharp in all focus range , very well corrected optics, good AF, very small for what it is.
Cons: none.

an almost perfect prime for me ,and if you dont need f1.4 or weather sealing of the similar Nikon and the Canon , the Sony is much better lens than these 2.


it is much cheaper than both the Nikon and the Canon 24f1.4, it is sharper than both the Nikon and the Canon.


it is much smaller than the both 24f1.4 lenses.


so , I highly recommend this lens to all Alpha shooters.


by the way, I use it on my A900 and A850.
