    This is not "just" a wide-angle lens. This is a piece of Japanese art. Heavy metallic beauty Zeiss class I would say. The difference here is that you also get AF embodied. Detail resolution and dynamics of this loophole supplies are completely beyond wit and senses - insanely good results simply. The feeling is on top, no play, just enough resistance in the aperture ring and focus manually.
    Switching between the MF / AF performed smoothly by simply sliding the large focus ring forward or backward. You can think what you want about the fine and sharp serrations on the ring. It provides a tremendous grip for the fingers, but for pedant may be mentioned that it is also a shit-magnet which quickly accumulate dead skin flakes from hands etc. It wants to be brushed a while before you have it completely clean and nice again.
    Bokeh-hunter should not stare completely blind in the large aperture of 1.4. It should be remembered that it is only 23mm in focal length so it requires a substantial distance between the main subject and background to get that creamy bokeh effect. Once successful, you will be richly rewarded, however, with really buttery smooth bokeh.
    I have used it a lot of astrophotography with stars and the northern lights. Where it thrives as a fish in water with the angle in combo with plenty of natural light. Unfortunately no shelter. Another drawback can be the high price, but it is on the other side host that the "state of the art" objective, this actually is.
    During 30 years of photo shooting, I never imagined that one can fall in love with an optical instrument ... until now. :)
