ePhotozine is the first website posting the full 35mmf /1.8 E-Mount lens review. The lens gets marked as “Highly Recommended” for the following reasons: “Sharpness is very good from maximum aperture, and can even be considered as outstanding as the lens is stopped down.Other optical anomalies, such as CAs, falloff and distortion are also kept well in check, plus the light weight and compact dimensions of the lens should make this an ideal addition to any serious NEX camera owners kit bag. The addition of optical stabilisation can only enhance the appeal of this lens.

This is an ideal lens for most of the kind of photos I will ever take. But when is Sony going to ship it? There seems a bit of confusion. European Sonystores like DEUKFRITESNLSEFICH still do say the lens will ship in Mid-November. But US and Japanese stores write that they will ship in late December only (See Amazon Japan and BHphoto).

Here is a list of stores accepting preorders:
USA: Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sonystore,
Europe: Amazon DE, Sonystore DEUKFRITESNLSEFICH, Wex UK.

P.S::Sigma just released the new 35mm f/1.4 lens! It costs $899 at BHphoto (click to preorder)
