    Cons: No cons. Best at 5.6, but nearly perfect at 2.0.

    Pros: Wonderful colors and superb bokeh at 2.0. Used it on a Nikon D810.

    Summary: Get it!

    Cons: Costly and a stop slower than many rivals Extreme borders only sharpen fully when stopped down to f5.6-f8

    Pros: Superb centre area resolution wide-open Super micro contrast Images have real pop and depth Complete correction of colour fringing and spherical aberration Exceptional rendering in out of focus areas and transition to blur Lovely close-up image quality Easy to focus...no focus shift Excellent build Wonderful manual focus helicoid Lovely vignetting at wider apertures which adds to depth of image rendering

    Summary: A wonderful lens. Perhaps a bit "under-engineered for traditional landscape use owing to vignetting and softer corners, but exceptional image sharpness, contrast & rendering for shooting all subjects at wider apertures. I love using such lenses for wide aperture landscape as the exceptional rendering ads real character to the images
