positive:shift and shit
negative:russian quality control
comment:I got a chance to try this lens out for a bit. Its not cheap for a Russian lens and like all Russian lenses its “roulette” on the quality control and the manufacture. If you get a good one then they are great. But if you don’t then who knows what could happen. I’ve read bout bad fitting bayonets that people couldn’t get the lens of their camera etc.
