I've used this lens with speed booster and it gets by as long as your shots a well lit/ have decent light. It's sharp enough with very little CA for what it is but that's my opinion.

If you want to know about the lens and you have it: test it. If you're testing a lens you want to get shots from a range of lighting conditions, focal distances, types of object, types of colours at different f stops etc. The vid above isn't too useful as it isn't testing anything in particular.

Agreed that there's really not much here to look at. Nothing really interesting and pretty shaky. Lock it off and shoot some CU of peoples faces and other interesting things, then grade it.
