Sony E 24mm f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* ZA SEL24F18Z review by Andy Andrews

Pros: Incredible resolution, even wide-open! Have yet to find any flare or ghost images in my pix - many shot into sun!
Cons: Expensive, as it costs more than the body.

The is a reason most photojournalist make a fast 35mm their go-to optic: It will cover most situations and most lighting conditions encountered. The 24mm Carl Zeiss works out to the same acceptance angle on the APC sensor of the Sony NEX cameras as a 35mm lens on a full-frame digital or film camera. Over the long haul and in the widest variety of shooting conditions, a prime lens will hold up better than a zoom. I know, as I have been using both since the zoom or vari-focal lens was invented.

Pros: Magical color, light weight and sturdy, fast and very sharp at wide open.
Cons: Price..........but you get what you pay for.

I bought this lens as a walk around and street lens.


I has fantastic color that seems to give three dimensional properties to your images.
I`s also very fast at 1.8 full aperture.
Full open is sharp across the frame and gives very contrasty fotos, which is quite unique for a wide angle.


It`s very light weight but sturdy and well finished. It comes with a nice plastic hood which fits well. Focus is fast and almost silent.


This is wat makes Zeiss famous and comparible with truly great lenses.


If you can afford it`s high price, buy it!!
