  • Excerpt: The performance of the S optics are unbelievably flawless performers. Even though I do not like to utilize lights in my style of photography, I decided to go with the CS version in the event I do use lights. The CS version allows sync speed up to 1/1000sec which opens up some great creative possibilities...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I have been using mine for the past two years all over the world. Simply amazing performance and there is nothing out there that comes close. Optics are terrific and resolution unbeatable. The lens is sealed and is ideal for previously hostile environments such as deserts, jungles or the poles....

Beautiful but not near Perfect

  • Excerpt: One of the absolute best photographic lenses made for sharpness, contrast, color, beautiful out of focus rendering. Autofocus speed is good for medium format but nowhere near the offerings from Nikon or Canon. Autofocus accuracy is spectacular. The biggest flaw of this lens is sometimes severe and offensive CA (chromatic aberration). Expect to spend plenty of time correcting CA in post. Also, max flash sync speed is truly 1/125 with no wiggle room.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Chromatic Aberration
