flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 1.4/28|
|price paid:||600 EUR|
|positive:||Between 35 and 50|
Tuned for IQ
|negative:||Size and weight|
|comment:||It is very, very heavy and bulky for a 40mm. That's the only issue.|
IQ is great in all regards. I find the Bokeh OK. Sharpness and CA control is why I use it most of the time instead of the 35 and the 50, if I don't mind the weight. Yes, it is neither a 35 nor a 50 but that works fine with me since I can take a step back most of them time and if want to take a wide landscape view, I pick a different lens.
It is a monster like the 105. AF should get the job done most of the time.
The Sigma 1.2/35 is said to be in the same league but at a different price point.
