Excerpt: This is an out of the box review, and I am not impressed. - Focus ring has some play, as all AF lenses have, but not like Zeiss. - Hood is made of hardish plastic, not sure it will survive outdoor use for long. - Hood bayonet is difficult to engage. No comparison to Zeiss. - DOF scale (f/32) is vastly too narrow. Lines are about 1 mm from center line, but should rather be about 5 mm from it. - Infinity focus is about 1 mm past infinity mark.
Excerpt: poor design makes this difficult to use especially when in a hurry to change positioning on a tripod. The ring is not locked onto the lense and is very stiff to rotate and often falls out of the housing
Cons: Cannot rotate 360 degrees, Difficult To Use, Not Functional, Very stiff action
