comment:It is a really cool lens. I thought It is perfect in additional to my Zeiss Basis 40mm. I'm only using fix lenses.
Compared to Minolta 50, it is really sharp....If it is worth to buy it for 680EUR in additional to the 50 Minolta lens...
No, of course the pictures are sharper, but in the end the difference was not so significant. I have given it back to the store.
