    Great lens It’s a good manual lens, with a bokeh you don’t see from new lenses, this is lens meant for creative photography, but can double as a solid general purpose lens. The vignette switch is even better for bringing subjects into focus.

    Burnside 35 is Awesome! It has a unique rustic tone to the images. The swirly bokeh you can make with the adjustable vignette border makes portraits really special. Its like a Petsval lense. Orange and green colors really pop with this lens!
