positive:sharp, good flare control, light weight, 72mm filter for a 20mm
negative:not D lens, hood is bit tight on my lens, not easy to remove
comment:I bought this lens for a week and really love it, i also have a KM 17-35 which is good for its range, I am thinking for keeping both of them as I hope will get a ff soon.

20mm F2.8 is sharp on my a700, sharp even as the corner, and it is very light comparing to 17-35, like it
