positive:EVERYTHING, I MEAN EVERYTHING, Sharpness, Bokeh and overall rendering is amazing
comment:I'm not a 50 guy, as a matter of fact I find this FL a little boring, but this lens brake my rules, I just went to do El Camino a Santiago and was the only lens I use in my A7r2 during all the walking for more than 300Km.
This is after my 85 GM the best FE lens tied with the Zeiss 35 FE 1.4
