Period of use: 7 days

Strengths:

Very Sharp in the center even wide open as all the Meyer Optik Lenses.

Nice contrast and super cool Bokeh, if nail it you will get a pretty cool Swirl around your subject plus staple bubble bokeh from this family of lenses.

Nice color shade very vintage and nostalgic.

Very fun to use, compact in size and a very nice strange focal length to play with. 

Preset clickless aperture very useful and practical to use excellent for videographers.

Super cool Flairs.


Weaknesses:

A little bit dark for this focal length.

Quite present distortion on the edges when close to wide open and up to f5.6, steping down solves the problem.


Comments:

Love it very unique artistic look if that is what you are going for, a lot of elements that you can use if you already dominate the little eating light black box in your hands.
