It's built like a tank, I'll tell you that.

I personally love all of their lenses because I shoot a lot of video and the manual focus is extremely smooth.  Plus the manual aperture ring is the only reasonable way to adjust exposure while filming (Like going from inside to outside.)

So pros:
Build
Great optics, really sharp and handles CA fairly well
Focus ring is smooth and weighted perfectly
Metal mount

Cons:
Aperture ring darkens viewfinder as you get a smaller aperture, not too big a deal
All manual, ideal for video but you can use it for stills just like a regular MF lens but I grew up in the age of autofocus haha

Well this is awesome! Wow 15 minutes from Dayton that's cool! Jhpeterson what do you shoot as a pro?  And Minnesota nice, you going to cars and coffee August 4th? I am!!
I shoot primarily boats. Get to travel about the country doing it. I'm on the East Coast right now and will be in Illinois on the 4th, so I won't get to cars and coffee. But, I should be in Minnesota for most of August and September. I'll look to catch up with you then.
