    Cons: Strongly visible longitudinal chromatic aberration in high contrast situations at open aperture: Tree branch against sun will show up greenish or redish halos.

    Pros: Sharp from f2.0, ultra sharp from f4.0 on but absolutely usable from f2.0. Great contrast and bokeh. Extremely low (lateral) chromatic aberrations, distortion, vignetting. Very compact and unobtrusive especially without lens hood.

    Summary: A great optics for detailed images with good color reproductions and uniformity across the field. On APS-C it makes a 160mm equiv lens between the standard focal lengths of 135mm and 200mm - not for every shooter, but perfect for me. Especially the short length of about 70mm lets you shoot without beeing observed by others!
