I bought this lens in late July to serve my wide angle needs through music festival season. While I had to return the first copy the second one is amazingly sharp corner to corner, and the image stabilization is stellar. I'd put image quality and functionality on a par with the Canon 16-35mm f/4, which I owned for a couple of years. There are only two downsides for me, the front element prevents conventional filters and it's not a light lens (IS will do that!), and I'm getting too old not to focus on weight in my pack. Otherwise the lens is excellent and is reviewed well.
Mine is in excellent condition, neither glass nor body shows any signs of use.
