A very good quality lens. Worth more than its price.

  • Excerpt: The lens is built like a tank and produces the result that I want. I was really surprised with the build quality and the output.

Sharp lens well made with flaws

Sabrina Nicholls, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used it on my week backpack and found the color to be different from left to right, OK for most shots. The color shift may be caused by uneven lens coatings? I shoot equirectangular spherical panoramas (360x180). It has NO depth of field (DoF) markings, just distance marks.

Surprising how sharp this lens is

  • Summary: Pros: * Wow this lens is sharp at 2.8! I haven't performed any static tests yet but in practice it's sharp corner to corner even at 2.8. * Nice small size * Focus is stiff. Normally I'd rank that as a con but in this case I like to set it and know it isn't going to move around.

Great lens, even better when taking the price into account

Dpbours, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a wonderful little lens, even when not taking into account it's low price. When taking the price into account it is even a greater lens! The manual focus is not an issue. I was at first wondering if I should buy the lens, but the manual focusing is really easy on an X-T1.
