Pros: Excellent distortion control, colors, and AF speed.
Cons:
It makes all other wide angle lenses for mirrorless cameras look like garbage.

After having shot the Zeiss 2.8/21 on Canon FF for a couple years and loving it, I was skeptical of this lens. To my surprise, it rivals its full frame brother - blasphemy - in all categories except the build quality. To be fair, it is a very well built lens, and for the Sony/Fuji crop camera models is a nice weight and balance. I was also surprised at how rapid the autofocus was. Being used to manual focusing the 21, I expected to have to do the same on the Sony mount. Instead, the AF performance was great.

How is the distortion? I have used it for portraits, and the subject looks just fine. There are no other lenses in this focal length where I would try that.

I purchased this lens as a two-pack with the 32mm and essentially got them for half normal price. Even at full price, this lens is a great performer.

Zeiss colors and image rendition in a lightweight package. What is not to like???
