Excerpt: I bought this lens a long time ago to use on my F100 35mm SLR camera. It sat in the box, I just couldn't get a nice portrait out of it, used my 50mm ... When I went to DSLR I tried again, still could not get a nice photo out if it.
Cons: Bulky, Clumsy, Difficult To Use, Not Functional, Poor Autofocus, Poor Design
Summary: I had this lens for the better part of three years. The image quality is fabulous - sharp, contrasty, good color - perhaps so good it's almost sterile. Pixel Peepers will LOVE this lens. The autofocus speed is....ssssslow and unreliable.
Excerpt: Delighted to receive a rare copy of this back ordered lens but the one I received had convergence issues at 8 feet and beyond. My copy drove me to discover the micro metering adjustments of my D700 which helped tame unwanted flaring.
Excerpt: I bought the lens because it's fast. Turns out mine is very soft when wide open and the autofocus is easily mislead by the thin DOF. It takes a lot of practice to get consistantly usable portraits even when focusing manually.
Summary: Tolle Schärfe, schönes Bokeh, gute Verabeitung. Eine echt tolle Linse, die aber leider einen nervigen Frontfokus hat, der dummerweise nur bei großen Blendenöffnungen auftritt, also nicht durch die Korrektur an der Kamera zu beheben ist (getestet an einer D700).
Summary: magnifica lente para la camara le ace una increible majia a la camara que tengas la acerca muy pero que muy bien pruebala y facil instalacion ponerla en.la lente y acorrer a ser un buen fotogtafo ace unas fotografias.
