Opinion:I took this lens to use it for portrait and for some close-up, given the minimum focusing distance of only 65cm. For the portrait becomes an equivalent focal of 170mm, then a little longer than the lenses usually used, while for the close-up allows to leave a little space from the subject, useful for butterflies, dragonflies and the like. At the slightest distance it frames a wide area about ten centimeters. It is used in manual both as regards the aperture ring and the focus, and I must say that this way of proceeding does not give particular problems with my G80, indeed leads to a more meditated approach. The focus is easy, thanks to focus peaking, and inaccurate focus shots are the exception and not the norm. The construction is good, the rings turn with good smoothness and precision. The sharpness seems good already at T.A., excellent closing of a stop. Colors and blurred very pleasant. On the G80 it is possible to indicate the focal length to allow the stabilization of the machine body. To increase the magnification I will try to use it with an extension tube. I opened a gallery with some test shots, without post-production. Update: Always with the G80 I did very good video footage in very low light conditions, working well with MF, where the AF of another lens started to go into crisis.
