positive:All-round-go focal length (36mm) on APS-C.
negative:None found.
comment:Everything is good for this focal length: focal length itself, colors, sharpness. Of course, some issues with distortion and this is easily corrected with Lightroom.
Build quality is also great. Though maybe not bulletproof and underwater designed :)
Nice sharp lens with pale Sigma colors. Good as main lens on APS-C 1.5x cropped cameras. Enough for landscaping. What else?
