Its light weight, compact and fast. Fast, not in the aspect of big aperture, but fast in handling. With the clickstop on the focusing tab, i basically just feel the lens and zone focus on my subject.
This lens at this focal length works very good for streets, wide enough for landscape, close enough for streets. The best part, its sharp and contrasty.
Here's the picture i took in Hong Kong.
You will never get enough of the nostaglic streets of Hong Kong.
At Yuen Po Street, a small area but definitely worth visiting!
An accidental double exposure.
Strolling with the bird
Looks a little cartoon here...haha
On streets, i realised that even with a f4 lens, at an iso 800, i am not restricted by the availability of light. While everyone thought that a bigger aperture like f1.4 would be more idea, i do not see the limitation of my lens.
Testifying to the above....
Night streets at Wang Jiao
Well, with a little practice, once you get familiar with the lens, you know it when you nail the shot!
I'm a person who dont really fancy distortion...but at 25mm im actually making use of the slight distortion from this lens. Its definitely not as overwhelming as the 21mm or the 15mm lenses....
Its a lens i never thought of selling...and definitely always in my "to bring" listing everywhere i go!
