Very sharp and pleasant 35mm lens at low price: Meike 35f1.4

For this lens, there wasn't even an option in the product drop down list for. And that is not a surprise. Meike and Neewer lenses are very inexpensive - but many just don't cut it from an IQ perspective. Not so with the 35f1.4: This lens is sharp in the center and across from f2.8. It is a small lens, well built, that comes at a very low price. It is MF but that is a plus. The form factor make it ideal for the a6xxx cameras. Very nice for street photgraphy. It is a pleasure to find focus, pre-set focus and f-stop for DoF. This lens with an a6xxx brings back the fun. I wish there was an easy and inexpensive way for manufacturers like Meike, Kamlan and Zonlai to implement focus magnifaction once the focus is being turned. But even w/o that, this lens is worth the price.
