11. Summary

Pros:
  • small, well-build and very handy casing,
  • sensational image quality in the frame centre,
  • excellent image quality on the edge of the frame, including the maximum relative aperture,
  • low chromatic aberration,
  • negligible astigmatism,
  • very well corrected coma,
  • well corrected vignetting,
  • proper work against bright light.

Cons:

  • lack of depth of field scale.

Does a small, solidly build, stylish lens really exist? One that provides an excellent image quality already up from the maximum relative aperture, in the frame centre and on the frame edge alike? A lens devoid of basic optical aberrations and with a very affordable price tag? You could skeptically answer that it is too beautiful to be true. The good news is that no, it is not; it is a lens called Samyang, designed for the Micro 4/3 system.
