Wow - I can't believe there's no archive for this one, yet. Oh, well - better late than never! The 2.8 max aperture is pretty pedestrian for a normal-range prime lens and I'm not crazy about the BOKEH (or the construction for that matter). But the detail rendering sure is spectacular! I like the slightly wider viewing angle, too (much more than 35mm). This lens will stay in my landscape roaming kit as long as I'm shooting NEX.
