Strength & Weakness

It has 2 weakness: (1) purple fringe (2) buzzy af motor.
but has 5 greatness: (1) amazingly thin DOF @f/2 near MFD
(2) poor man's macro lens
(3) good whole body portrait lens
(4) Super Tiny and lightweight
(5) Cheap

The sigma 30 1.4 is definitely better, but heavier and more expensive. If money is not a problem, sigma is awesome. The tricky part is finding one that focus reliably.
