Dream-Lense for Mirrorless Cameras, unmached Build + Image Quality.


Original Lense Hood impossible to find.


Must have Lense.

mechanical build, bokeh, coatings & resistance to flare


severe color fringing; very soft, even in the center, even stopped down @ f/5.6


My copy of this lens appears undamaged, but I cannot get good results from it. Especially in late afternoon shots, color fringing is severe, which, in my opinion, renders the beautiful S.S.C. coatings rather moot. I have tried it on my Canon A-1 (in all modes) as well as my FTb and results were the same. I shoot a lot of landscapes/nature/architecture, so it's not a good lens for my purposes. Black and white portrait artists may find it lovely, though.
