No matter if another 45 mm is needed or not: Nikon should hire the Irix designer to get some nicer mirrorless lenses Undecided Optically Irix might not be top notch, but their design is a bigger pleasure to look at than the cheap looking Z-lenses.

True. The blue "hump" on the focus ring looks especially nice.

The neutrino coating remains silly though ;-)

I like the focus lock and the rear filter slot (of the 11/4, although that one should have been designed better), the hood is very functional and the rear cap less slippery.

I also like the electrical contacts (LAOWA!), although I had mine already in a repair because one of the pins didn't come out again. Which took ages - at the end the dealer lost patience and gave me a new copy.

Now, AF please and then we'll talk. Smile

Though I'm kinda enamoured with my Tamron 45mm so probably wouldn't change it for anything unless a super compelling option crops up (a well performing AF 50/1.2 in EF mount for $700... fat chance!)
