positive:+Sharp at close distance (center only).
+Can produce very creative pictures

-Too heavy
comment:I love to play with this lens, since the distortion is amazing. Though I hate the chromatic aberration and lack of sharpness compared to my classic Minolta lenses.
Still I manage to get some very cool pictures with this lens. For landscape, I would not recommend this lens. Not sharp enough!
Price is also a killer.
