Lens hood doesn't help much
comment:Very nice lens, small, compact and fast focusing. Wide enough for most situations. F2.8 gives it a really nice DOF. Bokeh is nice, not brightlined. Compared to CZ24 there's not much difference. A tad sharper. Compared to 50mm the bokeh is less, but not brightlined.
