ownership:I own this lens
compared to:All available 85mm FE offerings.
price paid:£379
positive:Stellar miniature lens with bright, super sharp optics.
negative:Nothing at the price. The hood is great for cutting flair but somehow it interferes with autofocus. Use the hood from the Samyang 24mm f1.8 FE and you get consistently better results.
comment:If you like street photography and like to go un-noticed this is the lens. Stellar sharpness, fast and quiet. Fits in any bag.
And if you use the hood from the Samyang 24mm f1.8 FE and you get consistently better focusing results.
Who knew that a hood could disrupt AF?
