One of the first shots with my 40mm. Perhaps not the most exciting photograph ever taken, but oh my is this lens SHARP! I reckon it's even sharper than my FA50 1.4 at 2.8. And it has a certain something in it's rendering, the colours are really out there without feeling oversaturated and the in focus parts really pop. Love it!

Only little nag is the not-so-sublte CA when shooting wide open, but thankfully that's easily corrected

So good it could be from a Toyota ad.

Gee, thanks geomez!

I just realized the uploaded pic has less saturated colours than in lightroom, but that's probably due to the fact it's in ProPhotoRGB, which doesn't work well in web based content.
