|fake GFX 50s medium format panorama out of two images|
And don't forget that this lens is a macro lens which can be use to get real close to the subject. And the best thing is that this lens is a sharp beast (even wide open). It produces crisp and clear images with great color and contrast (read about it here at photozone). The lens is also very compact and and sturdy.
I know that this old lens is still a bit expensive, but the results in terms of images quality are totally worth the price and macro shooters will also get a nice lens with 1:2 magnification and lots of detail.
So give it a try!
