There is not a thing to dislike about the lens. Yes, it's somewhat on the weighty side, although just place your left hand beneath it and shoot, it's a perfect fit. When talking about bokeh, silky smooth is the thought that pops up with reference to the bokeh with particular this lens. Those out of focus areas just seem to fade into and distant from your subject. My shots always turn out beautiful. This is the lens that makes an amateur portrait shooter look like a professional.
Its performance at wide open aperture settings is amazingly accurate, and its equivalent to a 125.7mm 35mm SLR focal length giving you crisp middle range close-ups and native, distortion-free portrait images at relaxing distances.
An f/1.4 lens is not usually as efficient as the same manufacture's f/1.8 or f/2
lenses, even when both are stopped down to f/5.6. the lens with the wider
aperture is heaver and more expensive, so don't choose it as your standard
unless you are planning a great deal of photography poor light conditions.
There' plenty of reasons for using a wide aperture, but avoid buying a lens with
an aperture wider than you need.
It's perhaps the heaviest Sony Alpha prime lens, right next to its close cousin, the SAL 135 f/18 ZA, which is even bigger and weighs almost 30 percent more.
