Hi, I just saw this
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-...Id=5169400

I heard it has a slow focus but for $156, that's not too bad. Plus 10% eBay bucks for those who have them.

Here are some sample pictures using that lens

It looks like it's available again. I just bought one as well. For those who have eBay bucks, you're getting 10% eBay bucks too.

It's appearing as $199 on the website for me. I think the open box is OOS

These cheap nifty fifty lenses for many other manufacturers are excellent lenses and are tack sharp. How is the Sony? Would probably try this lens first for the Sony A7RII once I buy it, finally.

I shot some with it last weekend. It's a lot slower and louder than the Sony Zeiss 55 1.8.

I haven't open up raw to do the comparison yet. But looks pretty good zoomed and nice bokeh from camera LCD.

Less than $200 or pay $1000+ for the Zeiss. I'd probably get the $200 one. $150 is a steal.
