The lens is pretty good for a 50mm prime (probably better than anything you can get for a
DSLR), but looking at the enormous focus shift, I fail to see how it can rate
so high. probably the focus shift is less of a problem at larger distances, but
nearby even at f8, the original focus distance is not completely covered yet.
given that the M9 does not allow for stopped down live view, I would consider
this lens useless for near focus work. And yet it scores four and a half stars?
