I'm interested in this lens. I do macro work, and this could also be a good portrait/people lens. Owning this lens would also mean the end of all Nikon gear ownership for me.
However, I'm very disturbed by this hands on report from SAR:
A few great pictures of the new FE lenses (look how big that 24-240mm FE is). | sonyalpharumorsVery funny lens, with push and pull focus ring.
Push/pull focus on a lens that needs ultra precise focusing? Autofocus many times doesn't work well when approaching 1:1 magnification. I'm hoping this is inaccurate. I just can't see his type of manual focusing as ideal.
