    Cons: If this can be considered a minus, that is, a small drop in sharpness at the long end, which is quite normal for similar analogues.

    Pros: Great stabilizer, amazing sharpness all over the field, starting with the open aperture. Very good constructive, the lens hood has a lock. Great color rendering and fast autofocus.

    Summary: For those who want to save a substantial amount to buy a reportage lens, which is almost as good as the best analogues from native manufacturers, this lens will be an excellent choice. Not regret.

    Cons: Moderate level of distortion at the wide end. Heavy - as expected. Not much else to complain about. Minor imperfections will be easily corrected in post-processing.

    Pros: Very solid and well built. Quick and quiet focus. Focus is spot-on with my Nikon D610 compared to manual focusing in live view.. Accurate color. Just amazing sharpness. At F2.8, this is very good. By F4-5.6, image is sharp across the frame. This lens will be well matched for new high resolution cameras.

    Summary: This is a very impressive lens and an exceptional value. Great handling and image quality. The G2 could be the best lens I will ever own.
