comment:When I first time tested this lens, I was surprised by its light weight and compact dimensions. And as expected from GM lens, its optical performance is first class. Obviously an ultra wide angle prime does not suit every shooting situation, but if you have situation where this focal length is suitable, then this lens delivers great results. Works especially well in astrophotography.
