I've just been reading about this lens. Seems it can outresolve the rarer 21/2. I currently have the 21/2 in Luton Camera repairs. I dropped it onto carpet and the aperture seized and the filter thread got a little dented. Cost me £500 many years ago and it was allegedly a better performer than anything Canon had. I'm looking forward to getting it back in around a week and trying it out on Sony A7S. I'm hoping it'll make a good street lens on the A7S. I'll test out landscape/nature potential on A7R2.
