ownership:I own this lens
compared to:All other ultra wide full frame camera lenses by any manufacturer to date.
price paid:£1399.00
positive:Almost everything. I even passed on my beloved Voigtlander 15mm to my son.
negative:Use the manufacturer profile setting in Capture One. Don't use the profile provided for the lens if you need straight lines. Sun stars are not as good as those from the Voigtlander 15mm.
comment:Simply the best lens of it's type yet made. I have been using my copy for a couple of months now and it is just mind blowingly good. Just make sure that you use Sony's correction profile and not Lightroom or Capture One's if you want the best results for interiors and architecture.
