Period of use: 72 months

Strengths:

Very well made with smooth focus, etc. IQ gets fairly good stopped down.


Weaknesses:

FF has very dark corners and bokeh can be very nervous; "B+" IQ stopped down, but "C" wide open. Better on APS-C, but not compelling against your average modern APS-C kit zoom.


Comments:

Not a bad lens, just not compelling.
