Sharp, great bokeh, beautiful color rendition, easy varifocus when you get used to it.


does vignette which can be corrected in lightroom 5


I absolutely love this lens, it is almost always on my canon t2i, it challenges me to learn more about the old manual professional grade lens. Mine is a Cosina Built. The lens mount is a PK AR, the adapter is a little loose but can be adjusted to fit tighter. I highly recommend this lens.
