For many of us who wondered why E24mm F1.8 Zeiss should cost so much and why Sony didn't made a "bread and butter" non-Zeiss lens in such a versatile Focal Length.

It's manual, so it still no AF and thus no alternative to E24 in that regard. However, it's small, light, comes in black too, and it's same F1.8 and basically same 25mm - yey! The best part is that similar to Sigma primes, there is a MFT version already available on ebay and it costs $133 with free shipping! Cheap! I hope they will release it in E-mount any minute now and price will be basically same (well maybe couple of dollars difference). No adapter needed!

Zonlai 25mm F1.8 on Sony a6000 (silver).

This is for the first time I see a cheap lens without adapter, small and with F1.8 and same FL as E24 available for Sony NEX line cameras.

Considering it comes in E-mount, MFT and Fuji X mount - I think its optical IQ is on par and decent. there are some samples shot on Sony A3000 already available: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hudatran/sets/72157658609671873

Ans some more samples on Sony NEX-F3 (16Mp): https://www.flickr.com/photos/poojee/sets/72157661312832912
