ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sigma 2.8/24, KoMi 2.8-4/17-35
price paid:100 EUR
positive:Sharp, compact size, reasonable price
negative:Tendency towards CA's
comment:One of my favourite lenses for landscapes. I like the compact size and the remarkable sharpness even wide open. Build quality and optical performance are better than with the Sigma 2.8/24, and the lens clearly outperforms my KoMi 2.8-4/17-35. A certain tendency towards CA's is visible, yet not really relevant in most situations.
