Superb lens, it has very deep color saturation,excellent contrast and very good resolution.I can't test wide angle capability because I have NIKON D50 and not get infinity, so I tested in close-up shoots and read on internet other people opinions.Almost every owner has very good opinion from this lens, some lucky could compare with Canon and Nikon premium glasses, they report no difference between them or sometimes Flektogon is better.This lens is quite rare not very common and well respected in Eastern Europe, not stand to much time in local camera shops, if you can't buy immediately you should no chance to grab it on second day. Lens is well build good looking quality item except painting quit sensitive on barrel, easy to get off.
