This is a large lens for a 28mm f2.8 legacy lens. It is well built and performs very well, very smooth with a touch of firmness. I the fit and finish feels like a pro lens. It only shows the slightest touch of softness wide open and is very very sharp stopped down. The colors and contrast are natural. The bokeh is very nice, it is soft and creamy. CA is very well controlled. There is over 270 degree rotation on focus ring. One strange feature of this lens is that the aperture goes from f16 to f2.8 and back to f16 so you can loose your place if not careful.
