    Amazeballs indeed.

    Guess I won't be buying any new lenses anytime soon!

    I really loved the writer's snarky attitude towards the tech-obsessed crowd that will inevitably blame the lens anyway for their shitty photography. :)

    Definitely amazeballs, though.

    But isn't such a lens only creating more aberrations as there is only a smaller part of the light passing the center of the lens?
