7Artisans 50mm f1.1 七工匠 album and thoughts

I received this lens from Amazon last week, and have been enjoying taking pictures with it. Here's what I found so far:
Great size for an f1.1 lensCenter is sharp enough wide openCorners are a little soft, stopping down doesn't help much. (doesn't bother me, tho)Bokeh is smoother than Noctilux f1.0 Nice color renderingGood contrastA little back focus at minimum focus distance on my M9Click-less aperture ring is niceFocusing is very smoothDoes not vignette!? Maybe the lense profile corrects it? It’s coded as Noctilux f1.0 In short, I like this lens very much. Feels like using a faster modern Jupiter 3 in M mount. Here are the pictures I took over the past few days.
