flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 20/2.8|
Tokina 20-35 II
Minolta 24-85 new
|price paid:||120 USD (new)|
|positive:||Very sharp at f/8|
3 additional rear color filters
|negative:||Soft wide open|

Unique front cap
|comment:||My copy is very, very sharp at f/8 (Sony A700), aceptable at f/5.6, soft at f/4. On f/2.8 too soft and unusable for landscapes. Good color, metal build. |
I've got M42 version with chip adapter, but focus confirm is useless for this lens, so I replace it to usual one.
Note that rear tansparent or color filter is a part of optical scheme.
