Excerpt: After reading all the info I could find on how the Nikon f/1.8 and f/1.4 (both D and G versions) stacked up against the Samyung, I finally decided to take a chance on this inexpensive lens. It is well worth the money.

Summary: Sharp and contrasty. It was bought as a portrait lens but I think it'll see much more widespread use than that! Manual focus is no problem with the Sony as the in-viewfinder focus guides work perfectly.
Summary: Sharp Sharp Sharp One down fall, its hard to focus through the view finder. Best practice is to stop the lens down to f2 or so, and if you still can't get focus, use the rear LCD and focus that way. Its a champ of a lens for a very affordable price.
