price paid:
positive:Good contrast
Perfect sharpness
Light and bright
Tough build
negative:none really, but AF speed could be better
comment:The ultimate resolving machine. No zoom even comes close in sharpness. Color and contrast are great. Lens hood is adequate for avoiding flare. A good alternative for the heavy and much more expensive Zeiss primes. Highly recommended for both FF and APS-C.
