IMO the SEL30M35 is a bit underrated.

No complaints concerning the image quality from me, even wide open. It may not be perfect, but absolutely OK.

It's also an IF lens, so it doesn't extend while focusing, and AF is - especially on the A6600 - quite fast and reliable. It's the first macro lens I've used I actually prefer using with AF  in most situations.

Downside: You have to get comparatively close to the subject with a 30mm, so you have to be careful about blocking the light for your subject.

Most important for me: It is so small and light that I have in my bag most of the time - the best lens to use is often the one you have with you.
