Excellent Focus

  • Excerpt: Very clear and responsive. Only thing I did not like was it was not really smooth to put on. Very tight and a bit of a scraping sound when putting it on taking it off. Other than that--great glass.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Great Lens Lousy Hood

  • Excerpt: I have found this lens to be great for taking images of flowers and people. I also like it for taking pictures with available light indoors (e.g.; in museums).

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No Quality Hood Available

  • Summary: I purchased this lens to accompany my Panasonic GX-7. Previously, I had been using a 4/3 adapter for an old 50mm, manual focus lens. Though many old 35mm primes can give very good pictures, manual focus is tricky - even with the GX-7's excellent focus peaking.

Love the lens already. Bought IMPORT model and so far am happy.

  • Summary: I bought the IMPORT model and wanted to comment on it since I haven't seen many reviews referencing it. I figured for the amount of money I save on the IMPORT vs the regular, I would self-insure and hope that it worked (and continues to work).
