positive:coulor, sharpness,close focusing distance
comment:Highly recommended lens on aps - it's my favourite 35mm angle. You can get very close to the object,and it is fast, my sample is good when stopped down to f2 already,although is quite haeavy - i hope to replace it with maf 35 f2 once i can afford ff.Auto focusing is surprisingly good , fast and accurate- better than 24-50 or 20mm.Some early samples my require rechip from sigma.
