Excerpt: This lens is amazing. The sharpness and lack of vignetting is great. Since you probably already know a few of the common PROs for this lens I'll add a few CONS 1. The focus confirmation beep in the camera is very innaccurate - not necessarily a fault of the camera or lens since the focus sensors are...
Excerpt: Using it for portraits. Manual focus is slowing me down (good thing) giving me great satisfaction in producing what I want in less shots. Actually loving the manual focus. Smooth on the focusing ring so no complaints. Solid clicks on aperture ring so I know where I'm at without looking.
Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
Excerpt: I'm a videographer. I use this lens on one of my Panasonic GH4's. The manual focus ring is big and has lots of travel for easy very sharp focusing. I love it, in fact I'm planning on buying at least one of it's shorter focal length cousins. I'm selling TWO Nikon lenses to pay for them.
Excerpt: It looks good to the eyes, feel great in the hands, and mated well with the camera. However, it does not work as described. The camera didn't get a focus confirmation from the lens. With that confirmation, I was unable to take even one shot. I immediately returned it to B&H.
