positive:Sick colors, and bokeh with unparalleled sharpness!
negative:None that come to mind! Perfect lens in my opinion!
comment:This lens is unbelievably good. It makes any picture stand out! The bokeh - is amazing! Tack sharp! This beauty is very rare, and only appears about once or twice a year on Ebay. This year, so far, there were 4. I got one at a steal. Average price nears $1000.00 USD If any lens is worth that much - this one is!
