    Cons: Focusing ring angle is too small to facilitate manual focusing. As a result precise focusing is always hard.

    Pros: Very sharp in the centre even wide open with creamy bokeh. Wonderful portrait lens,. Good value for money.

    Summary: Samyang must definitely improve the design of this lens. It is excellent optically, but lacks the necessary means to focus with ease.
