Very much like the MC Rokkor PF 50mm f/1.7, but smaller than the older versions.


Very much like the MC Rokkor PF 50mm f/1.7... but seems somehow optically not quite as good. Hard to say why; it's a very small difference that's not even obvious in side-by-side comparison. Build quality is still excellent, but a notch down from the earlier models. APS-C still suffers soft corners until you stop down.


Still an excellent very cheap kit lens. Makes a great first manual focus lens for a mirrorless user who wants something smaller.
