Sony 35mm FE 2.8 Disappointing

Well there are always two sides to a storey and this lens takes tack sharp images from f4 and little or no CA and the despite what some  people say there was no suggestion of dark corners even at 2.8

The other side of the storey is the quality of the lens is pretty standard and not what I would expect for £750!

The lens hood is a  novel idea but would be better suited to a cheap lens and the lens cap is made of plastic.

I expected something of the quality of the lens on the RX1 which is in a different league, it looks and feels a precision piece of equipment.

Now the 35mm FE is compact and light so that's great, it just doesn't feel substantial, but you can't argue about the IQ, it's just a putty the FE lenses look to be the same quality as the cheaper NEX range and I see the 24-70 f4 being very similar to the 16-70
