Claire, A friend of me owns it, and I would agree to all what Roger said. Maybe one should add that the lens got a bit pincushion distortion, what gets visible if you got a straight line in the frame parallel and close to the edge. Tho it is much less distortion than my J8 shows I personally would not take it if architectural photography would be my passion. For all other purposes it is surely a top performer, crystal clear and super precise, a bit of the Industar type, 3d midformat look sometimes, and it is worth much more than the handful of bucks you pay for it . Also the quality feel is top.

Best,
