Pros: All

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Excellent optics on both aps-c and full-frame. Excellent sharpness even at full aperture, at f8 extraordinary, does not suffer from chromatic aberration nor appear annoying flares in the backlight. I have used it in many situations, always with noteworthy results. I don't part with it anymore. Excellent for urban views, portraits and pure landscapes. It is priced at a ridiculous price and is worth much more than certain Canon L-series lenses.

Pros: I'm comfortable on both full frame and aps-c and that's enough for me.

Cons: Sometimes the focus makes a close eye to the opening max but we talk about laughable depth of field. Raw vignette at maximum openings with viltrox adapters on canon m50 at least in my specimen.

Opinion: Tried on the m50 canon with the viltrox adapter without lenses, on the short sides with diaphragms more open than 2.8 you see the semi-circular shadow darker than the diaphragm disappearing after the 2.8. A vignette that disappears only by setting the square format 4000x4000 or cropping to 16 mpx. When used with the viltrox speedbooster 0.71x with lenses the machine reads a more open diaphragm. So f1 to f11. The same problem with the vignette on the short sides to which is added a dark hot spot in the center that disappears after f2.8 Return usable on canon m50 after 2.8 with surgical focus. In practice you have to ignore the more open stops Precise that both viltrox do not give boredom with other lenses that I own and the sigma 50 1.4 ex dg not from boredom on full frame or aps-c I think it is the not particularly successful pairing. For the rest I am satisfied.

Pros: Sharpness, excellent color yields, bokeh.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I used this lens first on aps-c sony A300 and now on the FF a99II, what to say, excellent color yield, bokeh to f. 1.4 fantastic and formidable detail, the weight balances perfectly with the machine and does not detract from it ,excellent handling and robustness. Lightning autofocus thanks to the ultrasonic engine. He never let me down, so happy to have bought it.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I use this lens on a pentax k20d and I have no focus problem (maybe I'm lucky). The lens is just fantastic, the other fixtures I've tried don't even come close to the quality of the photos it produces. I almost always use it at full openness in dimly lit environments, shooting almost always in natural light, achieving amazing results. The lens is sharp to go crazy, and has fantastic colors. Most of the photos taken do not retouch them, they are already perfect so. I took it by preferring it to the Pentax SMC FA 50 mm f/1.4 given the reviews on the internet and I have no regrets about the choice. Only neo the weight and clutter compared with similar products, as it comes closer to a 24-70 zoom than a fixed, but for me it is not a problem, indeed it balances the machine body very well. The construction is very solid and is equipped with bag and lampshade.

Pros: Bright, optimistic colors, af good

Cons: On aspc none

Opinion: Exemplary purchase used in conditions equal to the new. Bright, blurry beautiful. My specimen focuses precisely (it's not a splinter); I mount it on Canon 2000d, it may seem a bit long, but I use it for portraits and I find it exceptional. The weight compared to the new Art series is contained. Happy to buy. Every time I review the portraits made with this lens on PC I marvel at its colors and sharpness.
