negative:had to fine tune focus adjustment, does not work on my other camers well
comment:This lens is a great little performer. is light so great for walk around landscapes. kind of more limited than a zoom for walk around found mysels swapping lenses but for specific purposes very useful. I had to micro adjust this lens so without micro adjust found it was not sharp.
