    Phase/Mamiya 35mm f/3.5 Digital lens feedback?

    Has any one spent enough time using the new Phase/Mamiya 35mm to give feedback or impressions of the lens?

    Edge/corner sharpness of the older versions was always a minus, and CA was strong in the old MF versions.
    Is this version substantially better, or is ti just a re-packaging of the old optical design?

    Thanks, that helps. I'll probably stick w/ my N version, as it is decent. Doesn't sound like the new version is any great improvement.

    Its certainly better than the 3 previous versions I had of this lens. Even with a FF sensor i get very nice corners. I'm very pleased with it and in corner tests looked really good at F8

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    On the other hand, there are a few of the previous version that perform as well or better than some samples of the new version, so check out what you receive carefully.

    p.s.
    I am holding on to my previous version 35mm
