It is a great lens to use with my NEX-7 after the software update but I actually bought it to use with my old NEX-5D.
The lens is NOT compatible with my NEX-5D. There is no software update for this camera therefore the resulting pictures are distorted and have dark corners when in wide angle. I actually bought the lens to make my NEX-5 a pocket camera. Sony please stop saying that this is a compatable lens because this is just not true!
