I am intrigued by your summary of "Excellent Sharpness" - have regard to edge performance being a long to long long way behind centre at apertures faster than f8.
Did you mean excellent central sharpness - and good edge sharpness at f8 and smaller apertures?
7 Jun 2019 6:56PM
I mean excellent sharpness virtually throughout the centre of the image and also at some smaller apertures. It's a summary only, but the detail is in the fuller description. On reflection, it might have read more accurately if the wording of the summary was more specific.

Thanks John, I'm definitely going to pick this lens up. Can I ask when distances from the centre are you MTF centre and edge measurements taken at? Thanks
9 Jun 2019 1:52PM
Sorry, "what" are the distances?
9 Jun 2019 5:01PM
I measure at the centre and at various points at the edges. Hope that helps!

Spec page shows data for Chinon 28mm f/2.8 Smile

Thanks for that, I'm sure this will be corrected very soon.

How does it perform in regards to the Samyang 50 1.4 ?
I have it and this makes me want to change Smile

It depends on whether you want a more compact lens with a smaller aperture, or a larger, longer and slightly faster one. Either way, you will get sharp, satisfying images.

Well, bokeh is important. If the one of the f1.4 better ? (At similar aperture of course) ?
21 Jun 2019 1:35PM
The bokeh image set does show the sort of effect that both lenses demonstrate. It is an aesthetic choice, so careful examination of those images might help. I can't be more specific at this point as a fair bit of time has passed and a fair few other lenses have been looked at as well.
