comment:I used my friend's copy, which was wonderful on my Dynax 7. Man this lens has an old zeiss Sonnar Rendering wide open..I JUST LOVED IT. it's my next purchase for sure.
I find it draws its best at F2 or F2.8 and from 5.6 it's Sharp all over.

On a700 I only tried for few shots which was also great but not that wide due to crop factor.

This lens will shine on 35mm Film or Full Frame camera like no other.

I finally bought it.
