Pros: Restores the fun in creating unique photographs. Saves money, no need to buy expensive filters. Physically the lens feels solid as a rock, none of that loose fitting, noisy, plastic crap lenses that is floating around.
Cons:
No way to protect front element from environment.

Each lens is like a key. Turn the key with your imagination and magical images are created and captured. Some keys break when turned, but not this one. The quality of the construction inspires the photographer by delivering confidence that their photographs will only be limited by their imagination and not the optics or mechanical attributes of the lens itself. This focal range opens the doors to a world not seen by the eye, hence reveals a magical and often overlooked world around us. As with any professional lens there is a learning curve to master, but trust me this lens makes it a fun journey and a rewarding one too. For me this lens brings out the inner child by allowing me to see once again the world around me in a new and interesting perspective.
