It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

First off, welcome! Are you looking for general instructions on how to use a prime lens or are you looking for instructions on how to use your lens for a specific style of photography? As it stands your question seems too broad for this forum. It would be helpful if you could give and example of what you are trying to achieve with the lens. – CyberKnoy08 May 29 '13 at 22:10

Here is the manual for the camera - .

The lens does not require an instruction manual - but Sony does have one with very basic info that you can find here:

Sony also offers an informational document on α lenses that may help in your understanding:

@mattdm Ah nice, you did find an actual manual. I'll add that in. I couldn't find it at the Sony site, and the product info page didn't note that it came with it either so I figured it didn't. – dpollitt May 29 '13 at 23:33
