Got mine today, sharp, good flare control and well built. Here's a couple of seascapes:

wow it was great, but isn't the 16mm cap is limiting? and also do you guys find yourself using f/2.8 that often?

I mainly use the widest end for landscapes, usually 11-12mm so 16mm at the longest end isn't an issue. Haven't had to use f2.8 yet but I'm sure there will come a time when I do for indoor or low light handheld stuff.

16 mm can be a bit limiting, but nothing a little cropping can't solve:)
Seriously, when I put this on it is usually to go wide anyway. Bothered me a few times but not significantly.

Have used it a few times indoors in museums and such and really like it for that. And 2.8 have been nice to have there. Kinda surprised how often i used this as a "walkaround" lens, especially indoor but outside too. Anyone else do this or am I just too lazy to change lenses?;)

The barrel distortion at 11mm is a bit bothersome, but oh well.


ahahah :D

A wonderful lens to hold and use. Good contrast and resolution for this range of focal lengths.

Original and 100% crop

Some from the Griffith Observatory, it does flare a bit when shooting into the setting sun, but I guess that's to be expected.
