|Everything, this is a marvel of a lens
|No Optical Stabilization. When using IBIS and relatively long exposure times you may feel the edges of the image are not sharp. That is not the lens, that is motion blur as IBIS doesn't work so well in 14mm FL corners.
No hard infinity stop, awkward for astro photography.
The bulbous front element makes the use of front filters near impossible. Perhaps a dedecated filter holder for very expensive 150 mm filters will be made by 3rd party. Rear gel filters are a possibility but it appears cumbersome to me.
|Small, lightweight, super fast. Wide open performance is very good. AF/MF switch, manual aperture control possible with aperture ring on the lens.
