14 March 2013

Pros: solidna i metalowa obudowa,, rewelacyjna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, świetnie korygowana aberracja chromatyczna (podłużna i poprzeczna),, niezauważalna aberracja sferyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, bardzo mały astygmatyzm,, dobra praca pod ostre światło,, szybki, celny i cichy autofokus.
