I is a so,so lens. Not a lot of contrast and not too sharp; 
however, this is not to say that it does not fill a special point of view
for the M camera.  I must say that the above comments are based on a first
look at just two rolls of film (Delta 3200 and Delta 400)shot on one day.  I
will buy one and run more controlled tests.

 Wide open with sole light source in frame there is little halo and good
rendition of tonal scale of scene.

An interesting tool at a good price...view finder id great.

More later,
