positive:- Fun to use
negative:- The line between real distorsion and beautiful images is really short.
comment:This lens is a must in any semi pro bag, this lens is not very sharp, is not easy to use but it's fantastic to play with it. I used it always at f2.8. I have also the wide angle and tele convertor, I have also the macro lenses... the wide angle is very useful and the macro lenses are very good, the lens achieve a good sharpness even using those extra lenses.
