Now this is a manual lens so it is really tough with its shallow depth of field but when you really does get focus - awesome crispiness and wonderful dreamy bokeh! The focus confirmation is good from 5.6 up. From 3.5 to 1.4 the focus confirmation lags. I use the LiveView when eyeballing it. I might try the MagicLantern for focus peaking.
This is not for the impatient, nor for those fast-paced photo gigs. You have to turn, turn, turn some more just to be sure that beep is focusing right on the spot. You have to learn the quirks of this lens to truly appreciate it. I like the bokeh or blur of this than that of Sigma as it is softer, creamier and dreamier, my personal preference. This is great for videos, excellent color rendering and smooth ring. The aperture is controlled from the camera. I use this on a Canon 7D and both focus and apreture communicate well.
If you want fast lens with fast focusing and creamy bokeh, and have the money go for the Sigma. This one, I am keeping it! I know what I am getting so it is a 5 for me!
This copy had two 'focusing issues'. First, this lens has a 'chip' that recognizes when your subject is in focus and indicates as much in the viewfinder. Snap a photo when the indicator says your subject is in focus and the resulting image will be slightly out of focus. This was an issue at all apertures.
Since I could not rely on the 'chip' to indicate when an object was in focus, I had to use my eye through the viewfinder. This wound up also being an issue. Images through the viewfinder would appear in-focus but would be out-of-focus in the images. This sounds like operator error, I know, which is why I had a friend bring over his camera body to see if he experienced the same issue. After a few dozen shots, he noticed the same two issues which left us scratching our heads. He theorized that the center of the glass may have been slightly distorted as grabbing a focus point in the corner of the frame usually resulted in a perfect focus. We also noticed that the only reliable way to get a good focus on a subject was to shoot in LiveView.
This lens was stunning when you could manage to get a good focus. Beautiful and sharp even at f1.4 and the bokeh was outstanding. I shot with this lens for 2 weeks before returning it for the Nikon 50mm 1.8G. The Nikon is not as fast, it's not as sharp wide open, it's not built as well and it's not as colorful and contrasty at the larger apertures, BUT what good is a stunning lens if you can never get a good focus? The AF-S Nikon works as you'd expect and it's half the price.
Kudos to Amazon for a seamless return process. If you're confident in your manual-focusing abilities, check this lens out and cross your fingers for a good copy. If it doesn't work out, just send it back.
- Take a good look at the product photos (the larger versions). See those little flecs on the paint job? They're much more obvious in person. I suppose one could argue that it makes the lens more grippy...but I don't think it makes a huge difference. Even the plasticy feeling lens hood has the flecs.
- The lens is big and heavy. About 40% longer than the 18-55mm FujiFilm f2.8 OIS.
- The lens caps are terribly cheap plastic.
- I did notice some magenta fringing around black on white edges. FujiFilm's matched lenses do processing to remove such artifacts. This does not have any electronic camera connection, so you get what you get.
- This lens (even without the hood) is too big and too long to allow close-up use of the built-in flash. It will block about 1/4 of the light at the bottom of the frame depending on your subject distance.
- The focus is smooth, but a little less-so than the 18-55mm FujiFilm (my only other comparison). Nothing noticeable alone, but switching between the two, you can tell the difference.
- The aperture ring is nice and clicky. If you shoot video, it may be a bit too had to turn as you will undoubtedly jerk your camera switching.
- Being able to focus down to 1 foot puts this in macro territory. Minimum focal distances and wide open aperture will give you very very shallow depth-of-field. Ink bottle photo for depth-of-field.
- Bokeh is ok. Nothing to write home about. Attached is an obligatory bokeh Christmas lights photo. Center of frame are nice and round, but they get very squishy as you move out from the center. The other silver shot is just tinfoil. The balls look octagonal.
