positive:Bokeh, Bokeh, Bokeh did I mentioned BOKEH. Sharp
negative:NONE, I also love the manual focus
comment:If you like Bokeh, this is THE LENS. No other lens can achieve what this piece of art can, the bokeh is almost unreal, NO OTHER lens can do it.
If you have problems with manual focus buy the focusing screen (type M), this will help you a lot.
Also the sharpness of this lens is GREAT. This a very specific kind glass, but it worth every singe dollar, its just perfect for portraits
