This is a wonderful lens as it is the little brother to the famous 35mm f2 8 element. 
Looks identical but a fraction of  the price for 1 F stop. Actually a great lens optically and some feel that having 6 elements over the 8 element F2 is a sharper, better lens ( less refractive light ) 

A fine lens, Great on a M2 or M4 but also working perfectly on all other M mount camera
