Cons: none in my world

Pros: Build quality Image quality User experience

Summary: I am a manial focus photographer and buying this lens on my Canon EOS 6D meant taking me back to being able to photography the way I loved it with my trusty old manual Pentax MX. Ever since owning it My photography has take a step (or a jump :-) change in terms of quality both due to the image quality and because it slows me down and be considerate when taking photographs. Abslolute joy to own and if you're not sure about how a manual - only lens can change your photography, see if you can hire one in your area. Only thing I receommend to help you 'see' is to have a better focusing screen fitted. Enjoy!
