ownership:I have experience with this lens
compared to:
price paid:
positive:- small
- 55mm filter diameter
- quick focusing
- circular aperture
comment:I don't know why, but it is not a preferred lens. It is like a 35mm lens on digital, bright & focuses very fast - ideal for indoor shooting. It's price did not go into the sky, but the demand will grow when a FF (or 1.3x) body arrives, so it would be a great invention, too. Very recommended!
