    Pros: Superb build and weight and size Instant accurate focus Great manual focus as well Zeiss color and contrast

    Summary: I have to say this lens really took me by surprise. I was not expecting to be so impressed with it's color rendering, sharpness and contrast as I have been. It allows for accurate instant focus in less than decent light as well on a A7RII. The bokeh is 1st class all the way along with providing some of the finest portrait results I've seen. Also surprising was it's rendering outdoors on landscapes which are astonishingly superb. I will certainly be using this lens a lot more than I originally thought. What a pleasure to walk around with this on a A7RII as i weighs next to nothing.
