    Hi there, F8 is fine for a well lit day but not fast enough for a lot of situations, the aperture is fixed, & the bokeh gives little halo rings, you can spot them a mile off, & unless you have a steady tripod forget it. Oh & I nearly forgot it has no AF.

    You really do get what you pay for.
