Got some time to snap a few more shots. Again these are all SOOC jpegs, standard settings, no post done.



F2.8 at MFD(1.3meters)

for the life of me I keep on forgetting to flip images before uploading them, sorry about that.


Here's front focused one at F2.8, cant blame the missed focus on the lens

Aside from CA(which is fixable) the only other drawbacks I see are the 55mm filter threads(which are not used that much anymore) 58mm would have been perfect, but that's a simple fix with a setup ring.

The built in hood is a bit too short, wish it was twice as long it, also doesn't lock.
Again that's fixable by using an aftermarket hood.

It only has 6 aperture blades, the bokeh balls are only round in 2.8 and 3.5 by F4 you start seeing the six sides,
but for under $20 you can't go wrong with these!
