    Cons: Strong rainbow flare may show up if the front element is exposed to stray sunlight, lens hood recommended. Seems like there\'s a bit of field curvature wide open. FL can be awkward to use after an 85mm-equivalent lens, but those who prefer 105mm will feel right at home. If you camera doesn\'t remove CA automatically, you might notice some traces of it if you look closely.

    Pros: Sharp wide open up to the very corners of the frame even at longer focusing distances. Nice and smooth bokeh. Zero LoCAs (at least, I haven\'t spotted any so far) - very unusual in this price class. Fast and silent AF - about the same as M.Zuiko 45/1.8 I owned before. Size and weight are OK for m4/3 bodies (tested on OM-D E-M5 mk1). Build quality is pretty solid, nothing moves in or out and there\'s even a rubber gasket around the lens mount.

    Summary: An excellent portrait and short telephoto lens - a step above Olympus 45/1.8 or Panasonic 42.5/1.7 in terms of speed and optical quality for a modest price. Never mind some softness in the far corners on Sony bodies - you\'ll never see it on your m4/3.
