dyxum note
This is the latest version of the lens and most probably the best one to look for.
Optically, the lens is the same as older versions but some things are improved:
- circular blades
- D compatible (for ADI flash)
- larger focus ring (easier to operate)
- focus ring does not rotate in AF mode
