positive:sharp,smooth bokeh,good build
comment:this is a great lens for macro and portrait, the bokeh makes the subject pop, almost three dimensional, for macro the reach is good enough so as to not disturb u'r subject,
extremly shalow dof, the dof calculator tels me at 20 cm dof is 0.02 cm thats 1mm in front and 1mm behind but if u get it right the results r amazing, u can see the spider shot in the galary how small the dof is!!
if u dont have it pick it up...
