How would you say the quality control is on this lens. Most reviews are good, but one Amazon review that stuck in my mind mentioned some disappointment. Basically the lens was fine, she just wasn't wowed! She decided to exchange it and she was blown away. Again, no noticeable problems, just wasn't impressed. Anyone else feel that way about this lens? I'm on the fence. I have some great images, some that just ho-hum.
Any time you need to bump the ISO to beyond 6400, I'd say that the 40 isn't one I'd want on the front of the cam. It hunts (and fails) in very low light. I tried it at a concert once, and I will never use it again for that type of shooting.
That said, in most all other situations where light is decent, than, yes, it is an absolute amazing little piece of glass. For the money, the best bang for the buck I've ever spent for a lens. Really wish it had a red stripe around it.
