A99 + ZA 50 1.4 wide open.
I rather like the lens. I would say it's equally under and overrated.
Overrated, and heavily by Sony. It's certainly worth a premium over the SAL. Nowhere near the asking price however. But I knew it was ridiculously overpriced when I bought it. C'est la vie.
Underrated by, well, quite a few. It's quite sharp wide open, CA is there, but not intrusive, and it cleans up very easily. It's sharp into the corners stopped down (actually pretty sharp in the corners opened up too). The build is impeccable and the AF is the snappiest I've had on a 50. I'm sure it's no Otus, but it's my favorite 50 that I have owned so far. It's also the most overpriced, what are you going to do? You only live once.
