Amazing IQ with some issues

Jesse, B&H Photo
17 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I really love the look and feel of the lense as well as the IQ. The issues that I am having are that focusing was not perfect with my t1i out of the box and I am needing to calibrate it using the usb dock I purchased with the lense.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Not Sharp

Paul Choate, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • Summary: Not real happy with the lens. Was just okay out of the box but not better than my kit lens. Actually my kit lens is sharper. Don't know if the lens is defective or if it needs calibrating.

Amazing potential but poor focus

Dave, B&H Photo
31 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had two copies of this lens thanks to B&H's generous exchange and returns policy. Neither could autofocus effectively and the second copy had very jittery and slow live view focussing problems.
  • Pros: Good Color Saturation, Good contrast, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Heavy and slow to focus

eso, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: The built quality is great. It's silent and sharp. What bothers me is how slow the autofocus is. So slow I can't use it for a real job where fast AF is a must. Also it's bulky and heavy...not comfortable to carry around all day on your neck for sure. Thinking of returning it and get a real pro lens.

Inconsistent AF and IQ

JJ, B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: When the stars all align and there's a lot of light, some shots will be tac sharp; otherwise, you will experience softness... Inconsistent AF; noisy and slow-hunting at times. Disappointed with this Art lens offering.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Inconsistent focus, Slow Focus

Not as good as other reviews mentioned. Perhaps, I got a bad copy...

curious, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I was very excited when I was informed that the lens was available and I would get it in a few days. This excitement quickly turned into disappointment after taking a few shots with this lens. The first shot is very blurry. It is so bad up to the point that it is like out of focus.

Beschlagen von innen

Fabian Püschel "fab", Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: Das Bild auf der Nikon d5200 erscheint mir durch das Objektiv sehr scharf und verzeichnungsfrei. Vorsllem im Videobereich wirkt der Kontrast stark angehoben. Das kann aber auch an der Kamera liegen. Was mich aber irritiert hat: Die Linse beschlug von innen und das ohne besonderen Themperaturwechsel.
