    Cons: No weather sealing

    Pros: Everything, perfection.

    Summary: This lens is exceptional in every way, I have the 2/65 APO which is brilliant, and the 1.2/50 SE which consistently produces beautiful photographs (which look like timeless classic photographs), however the 2/50 APO is dare I say perfect, whether wide open or stopped down. It\'s perfect but it still has it\'s own character, that is to say the images are not sterile, not sure how this is possible... the detail, the color, the sharpness, the correctness and accuracy, the feel, the images. This has to be one of the best lenses ever made.
