f/2.8 - f/4 - f/5.6 - f/8 - f/11 - f/16 - f/22
Very good and solid.
Also very nice in terms of feel, focus is silky smooth and next to completely silent.
First it's like shooting yourself in the foot by just having a name like that.
Don't exactly sound very exclusive.
But it's not a bad lens, image quality is good and the build and feel is top of the line.
The next to completely silent focus makes this very good for filming and you can focus in a take and not worry about awful focus sound.
Image and build quality
Focus smoothness and sound
Closest focus of 0.9m (3ft)
Glow wide open (unless you like that effect)
