comment:Amazing lens with GREAT BOKEH, Legendary. I was tempted for long time and when I bought it, it exceeded my expectations. the way it draws is amazing Color or B&W.

Color Fringing is the main problem that I faced. It's apparent on a contrasty situations even at slower apertures!

wonderful lens
