Works great on my SLT-a65. Excellent imaging including close-ups. Have not had any trouble with focusing.

Bought 3(three) not working samples.

SAL24F20Z 17/06/2012 by Mict (USA)

Bought 3 SAL24F20Z. 1st one was an AF idiot. It hits everything but the target. I tried AF correction in my camera. But mistake is not linear. It differs with distance. Also this sample was very sharp and had beautiful picture. 2nd ones AF missed much lesser but it was not so sharp and still had 5 from 10 misses. 3d one missed 2 from 5 which is almost good. But it lacked crispy sharpness from 1st one. Ive returned all three to my local dealer. Guys you have to beat your QC to death with bare feet. I am a pro sony user and i am very dissapointed with service and product quality. Shall I buy any new upcoming cameras? I am not sure.

Excellent lens

SAL24F20Z 02/01/2015  (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified

I already have a 28mm Sony but having a Zeiss 135mm I thought the extra quality might make a difference. It does. Although the 28mm is an excellent lens, light to carry around, the f2 aperture and extra punch from the Zeiss glass make the most of the sensor on my A99. I'll keep both but the 28mm will only be my travelling lens from now on.

Versatile lens...

SAL24F20Z 16/07/2012 by Shadowfax001 (USA)

This is a great lens with several different faces. On the A900 it is a superlative wide angle with very little distortion, extremely sharp and rich Zeiss colors. on the A700 this is a super walk-around 36mm equivalent. I sometime find myself wanting the extra reach I have on the Zeiss 24-70. And, I sometimes feel like making this lens something that it is not. During times such as these, I just switch lenses to something more appropriate.

A mazing!

SAL24F20Z 20/10/2010 by AVESTA (Canada)

This lens is an amazing wide angle prime, and with the SSM it can be a great 35mm type of lens on the NEX (has auto-focus now) or similar APC-C type of sensors. I love the fact that it has a auto/manual focus switch on the side, as well as the hold focus button in the middle. If you like the Zeiss lineup, this is a must-have.
