    Cons: MF/AF switch feels wobbly, MF is very hard on the longer range as the scale is so short..(1m-infinty are too close together)

    Pros: very good image Quality, nice Bokeh, very good Macro range for MF(very easy to focus on short distances), relatively fast

    Summary: i use this lens very often on my NEX and it performs very well.. MF only, so i cant say anything about AF, very cheap to get

    User profile: Semipro

    Cons: MF-switch, feels a bit loose when shaken, AF-problems, light falloff

    Pros: Resolution, even at f/1.8 excellent results!, sturdy, not too big, resonable distortion

    Summary: This is my most used lens. A good alternative for obsolete Nikkor AF28/1.4 or MF35/1.4, nice close-up focusing and good colors, not too prone to flare. Try to test one before buying, older copies tend to focus wrong on new bodies. Well balanced ergonomics when mounted on D300/D700/D3.
