Period of use: 14 days


Surprisingly light for what it is, made of thin non-magnetic metal (Al alloy?) 

Not nose heavy, very well balanced

Very smooth almost silky precise operation (aperture blades, both aperture rings, focusing). Not sure why it got *** for mechanical quality

12 blades!

Pretty bright for this focal length

Goes to F22 (not that I need it..)

Great metal hood 70mm diam, 57mm hight


Awkward focal length (270mm) on APS-C sensor


Got mine in M42 mount

I doubt it is multicoated but the coating is very decent
