positive:

negative:The lack of filter and the big protruding front lens element prevent the user from protecting the front glass.
comment:The big protruding front element needs to be looked after carefully so it doesn't get any scratches or bump into things. It also is nearly impossible to avoid flaring to at least some unless extent, unless the sun is truly shining from your back.
