Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Review Date: Jan 5, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

Pros: Very sharp, smooth bokeh, moderate CA. Lightweight.
Tilted plane of focus, a rather flat rendering. Slightly big/ long.

I have tried two copies of this lens, both decentered with a tilted plane of focus, focused at infinity both lenses were very good in the centre and on the right side, on the left side the image was in focus at about 20-30m while the background was OOF.

Too me this is not acceptable for a lens in this price range. According to Sony the lenses were within specifications, luckily my retailer still stood up for me and offered me a refund.

A lens that is not decentered I would probably rate at 8 or 9.
