High focus distance.
comment:It is difficult to note something that has not been said of this lens. I've used in various APSC Cameras full format, and it still seems great. I managed external Lens Hood 75 mm and placed over the lens, avoid reflections. The screw-type, all made in 28 mm produces vignetting. If the 1.5 meter approach is not a problem. It is a good option if the lens is 30 years old
