reviewswhat are people saying

"A few quick extras: bokeh is buttery and beautiful, colors are rich and contrasty, near focus goes to just a few inches, the focus ring feels great and has a very long throw, the barrel is straight and compact, and it has a nice balance on a mid-size DSLR."

"This is great anywhere a 28mm lens would do, only a little more so. Actually, the 4mm makes a stark difference. The lens is very sharp and shows little distortion in normal use."

"On my D300, I mostly shoot in aperture-priority mode, so the lack of auto-focus doesn't bother me. I'll even go one step further: it is a good thing that this lens is not AF because it forces you to think about how you're casting foreground against background."
