Fujian CCTV 35mm 1.7 - Not Worth It

I got the lens (mainly because of its small size) for portraits and found it a total disappointment. I know a lot of people have posted some good looking pictures from the lens but I think those are the exceptions and not the norm. I got maybe 3 sharp pictures for every 10 attempts. And flare is a HUGE issue. I paid about the same price for a Minolta 50 1.7 and it is vastly better and 8 out of 10 shots would be sharp. Bottom line - it is a CCTV lens and not a camera lens.
