    Cons: Build is more plasticy than most of my other C/Y lenses (except for the 45/2.8). The focus throw is very long, making it hard to track moving subjects. Slightly flare-prone.

    Pros: Incredibly sharp. Very, very contrasty as long as the sun isn't in the image. Light and small: looks like a normal lens!

    Summary: A great lightweight, compact lens, especially for street photography.
