30mm under estimated power pack
1

Sony 30mm 2.8 Macro, one of the good lens for a Sony users, specially if you want to do some portrait or macro. Its small size is very light and work so well. I love the sharpness. its amazing sharpness make you wonder and its distance from the subject for focus is super hot. DOF is also well balance as it is 2.8, I love this lens, I used it for lots of portrait and Macro shots, even i shoot a short movie with it and result is fantastic.
I dont know very less people using it, even Sony wont promote it as its capacity. Its a good buy is such a economic price.

Problems:

A. Little noisy while in auto focus, not much smooth focus ring for manual.
B. production quality is not up to mark.
