Rated 5 out of 5
by MickyDeeNYC Surprise, surprise
Yes, it is a bit heavy and expensive for a 35mm, but you get what you pay for. And good glass is heavy.
I first played with this lens at the Sony Store here in NY City about three months before I decided I had to have it. Now, half the time when I go out shooting, this is the lens that's on my Alpha 77. It's bright and fast. It's everything I could want in a top quality pro-level 35mm lens. I like to interact with complete strangers on the street, catching them returning a smile, or sharing a new tat, and this unobtrusive hi quality lens has never let me down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by torralba Way underrated. It's a gem.
The sony 35mm 1.4 G must be their most underrated lens. Granted at 1.4 things look a little hazy. But anything above 1.4 is truly a joy to look at. Best bokeh I have seen from a 35 for a dslr. It is really smooth and creamy. Not to mention at f1.7 or 2.0 This is sharp and lovely. I gave it a 4 out of 5 only because at 1.4 the image looks a little hazy. But after 1.7 it's gone.
