Date Reviewed: November 2, 2000

Strengths:    Tack sharp
Distortion?Where?


Weaknesses:    A tad heavy.
External viewfinder is sensitive to backlight resulting in flare in finder.


Bottom Line:   
Super lens. In my setup of 50/80/150 i tend to use this one the most. Comes easy to recommend. No five stars for value at that price although I bought it "cheap" from Hong Kong. For performance 5+ stars...

Submitted by Dan Brown a Expert from Fort Worth, Texas USA

Date Reviewed: February 28, 2000

Strengths:    Razor sharp, silky smooth, no distortion, no flare or ghosting.

Weaknesses:    f4.5 maximum aperture, but not a real problem.

Bottom Line:   
Possibly the finest camera lens made. unbelievably sharp. Does use accessory finder, but M7 viewfinder is good approximation of lens coverage area.
