positive:good sharpness when stopped down
negative:some edge softness
not wide enough for digital
comment:Not up to the standards of my primes. I don't shoot a lot of wides but this lens is not wide enough for me now that I shoot with a 7D. If shooting digital find something wider. Color and flare control are fine in my view. Decent lens but nothing special
