flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||kit, 28-70G, Sig 10-20|
|price paid:||198 Euro|
|positive:||Sharpness, color, constant 2.8 which can be used with confidence|
|negative:||Some distortion (easily corrected with PT Lens)|
|comment:||Had an extremely lucky find for this lens on sale and for that price couldn't resist it (NIB with full warranty).|
Picture quality is very good from wide open (right there with other G-glass), pleasing colors and fast response. Some distortion (as with any wide zoom) is evident but correcting it in PP is easy.
Sharpness better at 2.8 than the Sig 10-20 at 5.6 in the range they overlap.
