    Cons: -only manual (can be a con) -no filters -no exifdata -distortion not usable for architecture

    Pros: +only manual (can be a pro) +no coma! +good sharpness +good buildquality +manualfocus ring works great +cheap

    Summary: This is the best lens for widefield astro work. Much better than the Canon 14mm 1:2.8 L II. Also okay for landscapes. But: Do not try to use it for architecture!

    Cons: No autofocus, tricky distortion

    Pros: excellent resolution, suprisingly high build quality for the money i spent

    Summary: Distortion can be corrected by post production and is not to worry about while photographing landscape an nature. On my Nikon D7000 the aperture can be controlled by the camera, exif-files and the focus indicator are working well. High value for an affordable price.

    Cons: No electronic coupling with the camera body means no exif info for future reference

    Pros: Incredible IQ for the price

    Summary: A well-built lens with the image quality of much more expensive alternatives. I shoot landscapes so the distortion is no problem for me, and I can always correct for it with PTLens. More importantly, I found out that shooting 4 frames at f/8, when focusing on the 0.28m, 0.4m, 0.7m, 2.0m markings, allows me to create a composite image where everything is tack sharp from 0.23m to infinity (post processing done with Helicon Focus). This lens is SHARP!
