Re: 14mm Lens just arrived

Hi Chris,

I hope you enjoy it - I'm very interested in this lens - very wide and with very low distortion appeals.  I wonder if I could ask a couple of questions......

-  It's interesting to hear about the mechanical end stops on the focus travel.  Nice.  Does this lens actually focus by the ring moving the elements, or is it still electronically driven focusing between the stops?

-  If you get the chance and are happy to test it out, I'd be interested to see how the lens responds to flare well stopped down (say f8-11) and with the sun included in the picture - does it give that clean classic sunburst look with the sun in the upper frame?  (I'm coming from using the Pentax 15mm/4 Limited to get that look).

Hope you like it.  Thanks,  Rod
