positive:Very useful lens...food for most situations
negative:Sadly the field of view is no longer as wide
comment:I probably keep this lens on my Maxxum 7D 70% of the time. Using it previously on my Maxxum 7 was great because of the wide field of view. I will probably need to supplement this lens with either the KM 11-18 or the Tamron 12-24 for the low end.
