    I don’t much care for the way the out-of-focus areas look. It reminds me of what thinks look like when you cross your eyes…almost a double-image effect. I find it distracting, which is the opposite of what you normally want with the background.

    I think this is a handy tool to have for low-light situations, but I still would prefer my Oly 25mm prime over this as a general purpose lens.
