    Is anyone using this lens?

    I don't know why I'm so fascinated by it, but I'd like to get one. Looking for user experiences and sample photos.

    I bought one in 1994, the first day I switched to Nikon because I absolutely wanted to have a 20mm and this one came out favourably in a test in a Dutch magazine. Cute and tiny as it was, after a few years I traded it for a Nikkor 20/2.8 because I was annoyed by the lack of corner sharpness and the prominent CA (even very well visible on film). Distortion was also quite prominent. I suspect this lens won't do well on an MFT camera either.
