Filming

Build quality


All metal and and very solid.


Conclusion

Wide open in will give good center sharpness but awful corners.
Stop it down and this is not bad at all.
The bokeh is not affected notably

Thumbs up:
Sharpness when stopped down
Bokeh

Thumbs down:
Corner at bigger apertures
Flare
