Youtube clip showing test images above in 100% cropped at center and corner.
These are also in there original res.
Flare / Backlight
More sample images can be found at:
It's all metal and are very solid and well built.
Image quality wide open has quite good center sharpness but also very noticeable corner softness.
Stop it down a bit and you can get some very nice quality pictures.
Bokeh looks great and the 8 bladed aperture keeps a fairly round bokeh stopped down.
But flare and backlight is not its strong point, unless you're looking for much of this.
A lovely lens with a image feel that I like very much.
8 bladed aperure
Flare / backlight (unless you prefer much of this)
