price paid:
positive:awesome build
nice MF feel
comes with 4 filters
tripod collar
cheap (beware)
negative:picture quality is useless
shutter lock has to be turned off
comment:this lens is built like a feels awesome when you get it out of the box...then you feel the MF ring - solid!

it even looks great when you view through your optical viewfinder.

what records to your CCD is another story!

the picture quality produced from this lens is pure Garbage!...junk.

bad in every way a photo could look bad...this lens is cheap for a reason

stay away if at all possible!
