Re: Just done my own first quick test - observations

Congrats on the new lens. The constantt f/2.8 will be a blessing in a lot of cases.

When I read the lenstip review I saw the lens is sharpest wide open and the drops with stopping down. There have also been some remakes about 'Blocky" edges.

It does look superbly sharp in the center with the edges trail by about 10-15% . But it looks that sharp that the sides and edges still look good. 40mm does not look that great though. I will also be interested in how you find the bokhe and if astigmatism really has that much of an effect.

Thank for clarifying the 12mm > 12mm thing.
