Nice background blur!, is it easy to use it in the fields? I assume it has no aperture mechanism so it has to be shot wide open.

Once you get the hang of using a magnifier for manual focus, then it is easier, but never quite easy. However, I think the results are worth it. In fact I will only be using cine lenses from now on. I just love their look! And despite the fact that the lens is always wide open, it has great sharpness corner to corner.
