flare control: 5
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||nikon 35mmf2 and nikon 50mmf1.4|
|positive:||excellent sharpness and fully usable at f1.4|
|negative:||expensive but worth the money|
|comment:||This lens used with a 7D is excellent for handheld photography in low light. It is fully usable at wide open at f1.4 unlike my nikon d100 + 50f1.4. build quality is superb and front element does not rotate or extend during focussing.|
I'm not quite sure what to make of the focus hold button though, seems a bit pointless on a lens like this.
The narrow depth of field showed up a backfocus error in my 7D but this is to do with the camera not the lens.
