"Will this work on Mirrorless Alpha A5100. Is this lens mount A lens or E lens. Alpha lens is not enough."
This is a lens with great image quality. You can use it wide open and still get great sharpness and smooth out of focus backgrounds. It is built very sturdy, but the manual focus is too stiff and turns too many degrees from infinity to MFD. The hood is flimsy, but it works. For **** dollars, you can't get much better optics. It is tough to focus correctly with my sony a700 but I have managed some outstanding shots. I will keep saving for an autofocus 85mm, but until then, this lens will do fine...

Caveat emptor: This is a manual focus (MF) lens. Make sure that you understand what that means before you buy it. I say this because I saw another reviewer got disappointed with it. Other than that, it's a fabulous piece of glass. I absolutely the shallow DOF and the beautiful bokeh that I get with this lens. Very sharp. The only negative that I can think of is some purple fringing. On the A100 and A700, this can be used in the 'A' mode so that the TTL light meter functions well. No need to stay in the 'M' mode and guess the exposure. I would recommend this lens without hesitation.

Though this lens is manual, it is very nicely made. Optics provide clear and vivid pictures. All you have to do is attach it to your Sony camera, switch to manual, and just remove your shutter lock for when the camera says "no lens attached". The AF equivalent of such a lens would cost $1,000+!Read More
I purchased this lens for my Alpha A350 and A700 and I received it yesterday. I was so excited to finally try a real 85mm f/1.4 with the fabulous bokeh potential and reportedly very sharp pictures.I was very, very disappointed to discover that the folks (Samyang) who built this very nice lens decided to forgo ANY kind of physical or electronic communication with the camera and the lens. They simply put a Minolta bayonet mount on the end of the lens and quit. The lens does NOT have either an aperture spring or any electronic contacts.What this means for the Alpha A200/A300 and A350 is that you cannot use this lens with metering modes. You will always have to select manual mode and figure out the exposure settings on a picture by picture basis!If you switch to theRead More
