10 out of 10 points and recommendedhigh quality build, fast primelens cap
This lens is an excellent alternative to comparable AF lenses.reviewed January 7th, 2009 (purchased for $749)
The built quality, the IQ, and especially the colour-rendition is superior to af-lenses out of this class.
the boke is sometimes a bit flattering, compared to the zeiss makro plan 50/2, but the makro planar is just another type of lens.
This lens is no Apochromat, so here is a tnedency for purple fringing at wide open shots, but this can be avoided by stopping a bit down.
