ownership:I own this lens
compared to:other wide lenses
price paid:
positive:light and small, enough sharp if stopped-down, useful for interiors photography, price. Fast AF.
negative:lack of sharpness on borders until f/8, colors, distortion, flare control. Very cheap assambly.
comment:I've this lens with its real constructor brand (Cosina). It gives a lot for its price and has more than enough quality to get good photos even at 42mpx, but don't ask for super-sharpness at the edges, nice colors, flare control and little distortion. Very cheap construction.
