It's been ages since I've used any Nikon lenses and even then it wasn't MF stuff. The question I have is does anyone know about this lens? I ask because after doing a bit of research I've come up with some pretty contradictory stuff. If what I have read is to be believed it is both sharp and not sharp, can close focus and not close focus and has both good contrast and low contrast. So after all that and checking a number of images it appears to actually be very sharp closeup and middle distances but perhaps not its best at infinity (although some claim it is good a small apertures just not infinity). The 20cm MFD sounds pretty appealing to me and since I'm not a big shooter of landscapes any softness at infinity isn't a big loss. Besides on my XE1 it's a 42mm EFL so... Are there any users of this lens and of so what do you think?
