    interesting "folk" glass, but judging by the official samples, even at 24 megapixels, super sharpness on an open lens does not shine ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      On a 6/4 scheme (albeit with aspherics) you won't go far, especially at the edges and corners of the frame.

      • Oleg

        Well, the Keno 40 / 2.8 on the open is not bad, but the edges in the bokeh will go to 2.0

        • Arkady Shapoval

          Here are just 40 2.8 mirrored

          • Oleg

            Well, mirrorless counterparts are usually slightly better than mirrorless ones.

    • Rodion

      Well, this is essentially the same as world-1: a short segment gives an improvement in quality, and an aspheric gives +1 stop of aperture. Arkady is right.

  • Anton

    Hi. I'm wondering, is it closer to 50mm 1,8g in sharpness? A very versatile glass in terms of focal length, and it turned out to be in size with weight, and also the price. Only the quality while the picture is confusing.
