Build quality

It's all metal and are very solid and well built.
The feel of this is also very good.


Conclusion

Did not have very high expectations of this lens but must say that it is quite the positive surprise.
Sharpness wide open is not that great but workable in my book.
Stop it down a little and you can get some very nice quality images.
Bokeh looks great and it also handles flare / backlight well.

A nice plus is also the closest focus which goes down to about 0.21m (0.69ft).

Somewhat unknown lens which usually are very cheap and has a good value for the money.


Thumbs up:

Thumbs down:
