Strength:

The colour rendition of this lens is unsurpassable, so is the craftmanship I have never seen anything like it quite frankly.

Weakness:

I wish it had a slightly longer turning radius for the focusing ring, it would have made the focusing easier and more accurate, and getting hold of a lens hood and the 67 EW type filters it uses is ridiculously expensive and hopelessly difficult.

It gives deep oak-like colours with smooth hue transgressions between contrasts. For those familiar with the Leica M series this lens has a very similar image performance to the 35mm f2 Summicron. It does not flatten the image in the corners (unless one goes amok on the shift). It’s a tad soft at f2.8 and delivers the best results stopped down a few notches, then it becomes very sharp.
