What aperture do you use?
In reply to Ollie 2, Apr 29, 2012

What aperture do you use most often? It's not great wide open (quality is like a 50mm f1.8 wide open) but stopped down a bit it gives better results.

I bought mine a year ago. Traveled through Europe with it and a bunch of other lenses. I've never managed to get anything great out of it. I don't know why it seems to work so well for some people but not for me.

All shots look a bit soft and it seems to have a fairly nasty purple fringing. The bokeh is never particularly pleasing to my eye and although it's a great video lens, I don't shoot video.

I like a manual lens and 25mm is a great focal length.

So, I'm thinking about selling it and picking up a Leica 25mm.

Anyone had a similar experience and/or preferred the Leica?
