  • Excerpt: This standard 50mm lens sports a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, ideal for blurring backgrounds, or for shooting in low light conditions.

  • Summary: Czy autofokus testowanego obiektywu jest miarodajny dla całej serii? Nie wiem. Zasady naszych testów są jednak takie, że testujemy to co do nas przychodzi ze sklepu lub od dystrybutora. Ogólniejsze wnioski na temat kontroli jakości wyciągamy na podstawie wielu testów produktów jednego producenta.
  • Pros: świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, bardzo dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, doskonale korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, bardzo mały astygmatyzm,, umiarkowane winietowanie,, świetna praca pod ostre światło,, funkcjonalny pierścień do manualnego ustawiania ostrości.
  • Cons: jakość obrazu w okolicach maksymalnego otworu jest zbyt słaba,, wyraźna koma,, za dużo plastiku w obudowie,, fatalny autofokus,, wysoka cena.
