|16-50mm DT, 50mm 1.4 Zeiss
|Light, small, decent build.
|CA, corner sharpness
|I've had this lens for a few years now. It's not bad in that- when you have a good amount of light- it can produce very nice images. It's not all that sharp though. You shouldn't expect that either given it's a 24mm. Corners are a bit of a let down even at F11. My 16-50mm DT does better at any F stop then this 24mm 2.8. You get some ghosting wide open but I suspect that's do to it being built for film not the 4mm or so thick glass on top of a digital sensor.
Bokeh isn't bad either but don't expect crazy amounts of sharpness out of this thing. It just aint going to happen.
