I rented the SEL24 for a week and I'm probably going to buy it. Like some of the others have said, the lens fits NEX cameras like a glove. I noticed an immediate difference on my 5N versus the kit lens. The contrast is much better and the manual focusing override is dampened just right. Bokeh at 1.8 is a bit nervous. I found that stopping the lens down to 2.2  rendered beautifully.
