not as good as Fuji 23mm 1.4, but better value.

This is what I'm afraid of when I read assessments like this:

'Prepare for ongoing frustration as this sub-pro quality lens occasionally fails to deliver useable results.'

Sounds like those old 1970's lenses I occasionally buy for my Nikon: They're interesting, but you have to know their many flaws.

Just yesterday anothe review was launched in youtube and again in line with others: the 23mm is very good, the 33m doesn't stand out much so its more for people who need 1.4 on a budget or a 1.4 with better AF.

"Prepare for ongoing frustation..." makes me think the reviewer was having a bad day or there's something else involved.

Here's the vídeo: Video
