    I have seen some interesting samples from this lens on Flick and it seems to sell rather inexpensively on evilBay, so I decided to try a copy.
    Most of the Fujinon 55mm f2.2 seem to suffer from the cracked focus ring (or other barrel part) since they are made from plastic, that has shrunk over time. The core of the barrel however is still made from metal so, while some lenses look bad, they still perform well.
    5 blades apertures are not exciting to me for speckled highlights in the bokeh when stopped down but I got this lens for the bokeh wide open.
