I had a 100/2 and a 150/2.8 Kinoptik for my Alpa. They were very very sharp
but V-E-R-Y prone to flare. The coating was nothing to write home about. I
actually sold these lenses for the simple reason that they were difficult
to use in "general" photography. You had to be very careful about where the
sun, lights, other bright objects, were. It wasn't worth the hassle.
