price paid:210 USD (used)
positive:SHARP, fast AF, good colors and contrast
negative:Hood makes putting on / taking off the front cap difficult.
comment:Manual focus or autofocus, this lens is among the fastest focusing primes, and very sharp! On film the perspective is fun. I can't really fault this lens at all other than the hood is more of a bother than its worth. Its tiny size keeps it always handy in my bag.
