flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||TAMRON 17-35mm f2.8-4.|
|price paid:||545USD (new)|
|positive:||The widest Full Frame available.|
Distorsion is under very good control. Not visible even at 12 mm!
|negative:||Low quality build,needs to be handlet with extra care!|
Need to correct colors.
|comment:||Bought this at a SALE. The widest angle of view, when I need it it is good to have. Not pinpoint sharp, needs lots of photoshoping. Colors are yellowish.|
The TAMRON are way better but does not have 12-17mm area.
Still it is possible to take nice picktures when really needing wide wide angle. Stepped down to f16 corners gets ok.
When working the proffesional way - doing much work for each shot this lens is indispenceable.
I use this lens seldom, but when I do it is always with good results.
