Love this lens as a simple walk-around lens for street photography on my Sony A7RV....makes the camera so light and more pocketable.
Here is a quick picture I took with it last week in HK...zone-focused at f8, 1/400s and ISO 5000 (hence the grain)...it was already at dusk under an overpass.
Well worth the money, if I want optical perfection I have other (and larger) lenses for that.

Excellent pic! Perfect lens for this sort of stuff.

I've been wanting to order this lens as it is quite interesting one in size, look and performance. Last week I stumbled on a used one at a real bargain price of 160 - it was no-brainer to place an order.

It is a bit soft wide open but surprisingly sharp at f/8. The in-focus area is very wonky - while focusing near to the minimum focus distance, some of the very distant objects might get unintentionally sharp in the extreme corners or edges of the image. I like that, produces very unique results.

This will be fun to shoot
