if compactness without (much) IQ compromise is the goal (which describes my street photography), and if regular AF video use or ultra low light isn't necessary, the Samyang is a sure bargain. The B&H review says its IQ is better than the Zony, and its lower weight and ultra low profile sure is appealing as an extra lens in your pocket or for casual shooting where low-profile is the priority. It feels a bit plasticky, like some m43 lenses, but that's what you get for 120 grams.

It is the first ranked non-G Master lens in this (highly subjective) article.

A great lens, fast accurate focusing, metal mount, (not plastic as someone said.)

And now there is a 24mm f2.8 version as well.
