7 out of 10 points and recommendedGreat Centre sharpness, colour and contrast at maximum aperture in low light. Small lens.Overall sharpness only at smaller apertures
My experience is the same as the reviewer. I was hoping to use this lens for landscapes as well, but it requires a lot of stopping down.reviewed December 13th, 2017
Fine in low light, though - bit of a marvel there.
9 out of 10 points and recommendedVery, very sharp at all apertures.Method of changing from autofocus to manual focus.
This is the sharpest lens I have. It is excellent everywhere with only slightly softer corners at f2.8.reviewed December 13th, 2017
It is excellent at infinity and brilliant at macro.
Solid, it is a bit old fashioned in operation, but is very usable and a favourite of mine.
8 out of 10 points and recommendedVery good from f5.6. Very solid, but still compact. Excellent colour rendition.A bit soft in the corners at f2.8
This is my one AIS lens. I like autofocus, but the wide angle helps here.reviewed December 13th, 2017 (purchased for $200)
From f5.6 on, image quality is delightful.
Compact but weighty, this will likely outlast all my other lenses.
7 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp from f4. Small and light. Infinity stop.Soft and hazy wide open.
This is a design from the film days. The newer standard lenses are better wide open.reviewed December 13th, 2017 (purchased for $105)
However, on a flight over Antarctica, at f8 and manually focused to infinity, the quality of the images was beyond criticism.
I have the 50 f1.8 AF-S, but still use this lens where it is stronger.
