F 4.

F 8.

F 22.

Closest focus
is 56cm from outermost edge of the lens, F 8; it's not really close. Focus on the program wheel of the camera.

This lens is very small and very lightweight. Wide open, it has some softness towards the edges. Carefully aligned there is no distortion. It's a wonderful walk-around lens if you prefer wider angles. At F 8 it's nice, focussing is very easy because of the wide depth-of-the-field range, at F 22 however it's blurred due to diffraction. This is a problem of the APS-C sensor size, not the lens (see comparison page). It produces nice wide images with a nostalgic image impression. I like it quite well.
