flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|price paid:||300 USD (new|
|positive:||wide angle macro, fast lens (light)|
|negative:||size, slower autofocus, sharpness|
|comment:||I won't compare this lens to any other as it is quite a specific glass, which has no comparable rival in my camera bag.|
Wide open is ok only at the centre. Corners suffer too much in terms of resolution, which I hoped won't be the case for macro. I feel that from f/4 up you can get decent corners. f/5,6 to f/11 are the best apertures for this lens in my view. Macro is good, I use it also as a landscape lens with ND filters getting great results. Focus is good and precise.
Overall I like the lens and would recommended it to others if they are looking for something in this focal range with fantastic macro capabilities.
