The exposures are quite different. The 5.6 photo is much darker.
Yeah! I know....I just threw the f5.6 shot I had taken just to show it sharpens up. I didn't bother to get the expsoure the same.

It doesn't have the usual PF/CA that I would have expected, actually as you can see they are totally absent even around the blownout lights. This is mighty impressive.

However, a few interior shots with a wide dynamic range, like a bright window to one edge does cast a light leak look in a few shots.

I've sharpened these shots, definitely soft at f2.
That's to be expected at f2.

That's def. a good one you got. Mine has average PF/CA, and it's soft towards the edges. It overexposes by 2/3 - 1 stop too in daylight on my K-7.

It was the second lens i got after i got the K-7 tho, perhaps i should revisit and retest.
