reviewswhat are people saying

"He was absolutely right, and this lens has made a huge difference in the quality of my shooting. The imagery through this lens is bright and crisp. The bokeh beautifully smooth."

"Extremely sharp, and it feels like a 'real' lens. I am using it for street photos at the moment, and its fairly challenging to pull the focus correctly, but once you get over that its great."

bhphotovideo.com

"This lens is very nicely constructed, but it isn't really critically sharp at a 1.4. Color rendition is very nice. I wish that it was as good as my 85mm Rokinon, but it isn't, so back it goes!"
