How easy would it be to add an auto-ISO mode that exposes to the right and include it in the next firmware update, I wonder...

@captura
I've sold it a couple of months ago and now that you mention it there is some "onionness" on some of them. :(
I didn't care about it at the time. (As in: I haven't noticed.)
I still think it's still a good lens, though. At least the razor-sharp part remains.

I have to note that the onion rings are only apparent with mid- or low-level brightness brilliant light sources, they kinda disappear if these dots are clipped. I guess no surprises there.

I've had a sony a6000 and there is nothing better than the 30mm f1.4 for it. Bookeh is smooth like butter and it's tack sharp at f5.6, and still quite sharp at f1.4 (plenty for portraits). You have to live with the distortion though (easily corrected in LR).

I'd definitely buy this one as the 19mm f2.8 is not articularly sharp or fast, but that's the best affordable general pupose lens on e-mount. This 16mm could be a brighter replacement for those group shots in a party, low light, etc.. I'd expect this thing will be as sharp as the 30mm, or maybe just a little less because of the wide angle.

It should be a lot of bang for the buck, as is the 30mm, so great for people who are learning photography on sony aps-c.
