10 out of 10 points and recommendedthe lens is next to perfectnone
Well where to start, bought this lens as a walkabout lens, and because I wanted a fast lens when indoor situations demanded it.reviewed September 29th, 2006 (purchased for $400)
I have so far not been disappointed. This lens is among the best I have seen.
Crisp, excellent bokeh, fast and razor sharp.
Even a very smooth manual focus.
THe build quality is a chapter of its own. Outstanding, simply outstanding.
Aluminium all the way and the short full cone hood is linned with black felt. Lens cap is in aluminium as well and linned with a fine green felt that keeps the cap attached to the hood. very smooth.
I have acheaved excellent portraits and beautiful landscape photos with this one.
It has my strongest recommendation, excellent performance in every aspect and the it is a beauty on the camera:)
