  1. Also see my comment in the 12 Sony wish list. You call it a “budget” category, as a advanced amateur photographer / pro sailor, light weight and small is a must. Airline companies do’nt like heavy photo cases as carry on luggage! But I like neat and sharp pictures. Budget is a must I think, otherwise a big group of users are being let down. I hope retailers in Europe will sell these “budget” class lenses to keep the “amateurs” happy. Love to see a review / comparision of these “budget” lenses for the “not pro shooters” in the world. Also hope that retailers worldwide will sell them!

  2. It’s not necessarily a trend setting sort of lens, but I thought it was really good overall. It has more of a vintage logic and optical quality to it with a few modern bells and whistles thrown in for good measure. For the price, I think it’s a pretty good value for an 85mm.
