|compared to:||Batis 25mm. Batis 40mm. 16-35 GM. Voigtlander FE 15mm. Zeiss FE 35. Zeiss FE 55. Sony FE 85. Sony 70-200 GM. Sigma FE 135 f1.8|
|positive:||Beautifully made. Feels like a Zeiss lens. Super sharp and wonderful rendering.|
|negative:||Slightly noisy AF that is a bit to talkative in C-AF mode.|
|comment:||This lens could easily be a Sony GM in terms of sharpness and general IQ. The colours and contrast are Zeiss like. My shop-bought copy, is perfectly centered and has a nice tight hood.|
The quality was a real surprise, I just wasn't expecting it to be top draw, which it definitely is, apart from the talkative autofocus. It is a keeper as far as I'm concerned.
My advice is to buy from a camera store where you can test it before you part with your money.
